Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Allspice, ground

(Allspice, ground)  Ground allspice seasoning (also called Pimento) is made by grinding the dried unripe berries of the Pimenta dioica tree, which is also know as Jamaican pepper, and can grow to heights of 30 feet. We use ground allspice to season a variety of dishes from cookies to pasta sauces to soups. Allspice has the flavor and taste similar to a combination of equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper (which could also be use as a substitute).  In the photo to the left is a teaspoon of allspice.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
