What Does Mexican Allspice Taste Like
Allspice is warm and sweetly pungent with floral undertones. Mexican Allspice has a mellower flavor and is not quite as sweet as Jamaican or Central American grown Allspice.
Allspice can be used as a substitute for cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg, use one part to one part. If you need to make a substitution for allspice, combine one part nutmeg with two parts each of cinnamon and cloves.
