Native to the Caribbean Islands, where it was first encountered by Columbus on his second voyage to the New World, allspice is now used extensively in cuisines throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, where it is an indispensable ingredient in meat dishes and stews. Given its unusual name by British cooks who thought it combined the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, allspice is a key ingredient in Jamaican jerk seasoning, barbecue sauces and Cincinnati-style chili as well as numerous baked goods and desserts.
