Allspice

| January 12, 2015

allspiceAllspice is also a healing herb, not just an addition to your sweet baking projects.  In the tropical countries where this tree grows the dried berries are used as concoctions for gas and bloating and as poultices for neuralgia.  It got its name because it has a flavor reminiscent of cinnamon, cloves and black pepper.  Here’s how you could use it, if necessary.  Simmer some berries in water for 10 minutes.  Strain (keep the berries) and sip the allspice tea to help ease digestive problems.  Grind the cooked berries in a food processor and store in the freezer until needed for a poultice.  When needed, thaw and wrap in cheesecloth and apply to the painful area.  Wrap with plastic wrap and keep on for 20 to 30 minutes.  Here’s another use.  I mix it with other spices and put in my peppermill.  Every grind gives a slightly different flavor.  Some of the spices I mix it with are peppercorns, whole coriander, crushed chilis, whole fennel seed coarse sea salt, and dill seed.
