Allspice powder is an all=purpose powder: a must-have in Caribbean and Latin American kitchens. Allspice combines cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper to create a rich complexity of flavors: sweet, warm and savory. Allspice powder can be used as a substitute for cinnamon powder. Use it to make Jamaican jerk chicken or Swedish meatballs. A pinch of allspice could spice up desserts e.g. gingerbread or apple pie.
