First published in May 2008, this updated pantry ingredient post features new photos, links, and a few tweaks to the recipe. If you missed it the first time around, please enjoy this seasonal rhubarb recipe and some fun facts about allspice.
Next time I reorganize my spice rack, I'm abandoning my usual system.
Next time, I will not group the little jars into peppers, salts, baking spices, warm spices and leafy green herbs.

- brings prosperity and good fortune
- used for embalming pharoahs in ancient Egypt
That covers just about everything on my spice rack, including allspice (a triple whammy: numbers 2, 3 and 4).
