Allspice Cooking Tips and Substitutions

• Allspice can be substituted for cloves in many recipes.

• For a flavorful peppercorn mixture for your peppermill, add whole allspice berries in equal proportions to green, black, and white peppercorns.

• To further intensify the flavor and aroma of whole allspice berries, place them on a cookie sheet and roast in a 350-degree F. oven until they begin to smell, about 10 minutes.

Achieve the same effect by using a heavy dry frypan on the stovetop, shaking often over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Watch carefully so they do not burn and become bitter. Cool before using.

• When using allspice in yeast breads, limit the amount to 1/4 teaspoon per cup of flour.

• The allspice can inhibit the activity of the yeast in large amounts.

• 6 whole allspice berries = 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground allspice.

• 1 teaspoon ground allspice = 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves.
