There comes a point in the year (AKA *now*) when fragrant spices are appealing in almost every dish. As soon as sweater weather hits, we just want to whip up chai tea dessert recipes, pumpkin spice mixes, and other seasonal autumn desserts. But instead of fumbling around with different proportions of spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, let allspice take the front seat. Although it sounds like a manufactured blend, this spice is really just a dried berry from trees native to Southern Mexico. Besides being delicious and warming, it's a natural anti-inflammatory and full of antioxidants, which is something you can absolutely use more of during the cold weather. And you don't have to limit allspice to only desserts — scroll on for great ways to introduce it into any meal.
