Medicinal Properties of Allspice
- Allspice provides relief for digestive problems because the volatile
oil contains Eugenol, a weak antimicrobial agent.
- It is also carminative in nature as it also contains an oil
rubefacient, meaning that it irritates the skin and expands the blood
vessels, increasing the flow of blood to make the skin feel warmer.
- The tannins in allspice provide a mild anesthetic that, with its
warming effect, make it a popular home remedy for arthritis and sore
muscles, used either as a poultice or in hot baths.
- Allspice can be used as a substitute, measure, for cinnamon, cloves
- Jerked meats like pork, chicken and kid reflect the Spanish/Jamaican
background of Allspice.
- It is a particularly popular spice in European cooking, an important
ingredient in many marinades, pickling and mulling spices.
- Many pâtés, terrines, smoked and canned meats include
allspice. It is also used in liqueurs.
