allspice has a sweet taste that’s reminiscent of a number of different spices, including cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Because of its sweetness, it’s commonly used in baked goods like spice cakes, dessert breads and cookies. It’s also the primary flavor in Jamaican jerk seasoning.   Many chefs prefer whole allspice because of the more intense flavor and aroma you get by crushing or grinding it just prior to use.

They’re so potent, in fact, that we recommend using 1/3 of a leaf in recipes that call for a whole leaf.

Paprika works well in a variety of dishes, but is particularly well suited to seafood and chicken. Stir it into melted lemon butter for an easy dipping sauce.

LEMON PEEL  The outer peel of the lemon, commonly referred to as lemon zest, holds the highest amount of essential oils.
