These exquisite Jamaican Pimento Leaves come from Jamaican Pimento Trees. After several weeks of shadow drying, these Pimento leaves are packaged for happy customers around the globe.

You can use these Pimento Leaves to achieve the real Jamaican Jerk Seasoned meat taste that is famous worldwide. Jerk seasoned meats have a distinct flavor due to the smoke of pimento leaves and a unique cooking technique.

These leaves can also be used in the marinade process. Simply wash the leaves, smash them into more refined pieces, and spread them over chicken or meat with additional seasonings. This lets the pimento taste to permeate the chicken or meat. You can also use these leaves on the grill by putting the chicken or meat directly on the bed of these leaves.

Our Jamaican Pimento leaves have almost the same flavor as the Pimento Berries that are used for spice. Toss them on the coals for a spicy smoke, or throw them in a pan of hot water to make extremely delicious steam for any meat. You can also use these leaves in your jerk rubs as a spice or in place of bay leaves in any recipe.

Note: Pimento leaves come in different sizes and colors and are sun-dried in a natural way. Some will be entire leaves, but they can also be in smaller pieces because they are dried.

Why Pimento Wood is quite difficult to find?
The Victorian era saw the near-destruction of the world’s spice trees (pimento wood). These trees were chopped down not for their spices but for their wood. Because the pale, fragrant wood withstood bending and splitting, it was popular to make umbrellas and walking sticks out of it. Millions of trees were cut down. To safeguard them, Jamaica imposed a stringent export restriction on allspice seedlings (pimento wood) in 1882.

Our pimento leaves are directly sourced from Authentic Jamaican Trees.
