    Spotlight Product:

    Allspice

    If you have yet to discover the wonders of organic Allspice it is time you did. A a highly aromatic dried berry (resembling pepper) who’s aroma and flavour resembles a peppery compound of cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

    This versatile whole spice can be used in savoury and sweet dishes, and like peppercorns can be popped in a pepper grinder and freshly ground to taste. Perfect, for roasts, stews, fruity desserts and chutneys. Once you begin using it you won’t want to stop.
