Allspice Berries in Christmas Chutney
Asked on 26 Jul 2016 by Bea
Hi I have made christmas chutney for years, however I cannot get allspice berries or ground allspice here. I know I can use ground cinnamon,cloves and/or nutmeg to substitute, However I don't know what quantity to use to substitute for the 3oz of whole allspice berries. Can you help please.
You don’t say where you are but allspice is also known as Jamaica Pepper or Pimento Berries.
I would try 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and ½ teaspoon ground cloves.
