Full Answer

A substitution for allspice in recipes is 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon plus 1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves for each teaspoon of allspice. Allspice berries can be heated in the oven or cooked for a short time on the stove to release more flavor, but take care not to overheat them to avoid a bitter taste. Allspice affects the potency of yeast, so use it sparingly when adding it to baked breads.
