Crush the whole cloves and the allspice in your mortar and pestle (we used the mortar to grind our pepper as well). Place the spices along with all the other ingredients in the bowl of your food processor.   Blend for a couple of minutes until the mixture forms a slightly coarse paste.

This paste will store 2 -3 months in your refrigerator.
