Colleen's notes for this recipe:
Allspice is a real spice... if you are out of it... make this replacement (substitute)...

Just three common spices will get you the allspice flavor that you need for that recipe you are eager to try!
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Mix together well. Put in airtight container.
*** Use this in any recipe that calls for allspice!

did you know that allspice is a spice by itself? I did not know this until about 5 yrs or so ago...I always thought it was a combo of the spices you mentioned above...crazy huh?

Yes... allspice is a spice on it's own... this is just a fill in! LOL I guess I forgot to mention that... thanks Wendy! ox
