Jerk Seasoning; from scratch

0 Comments

This Jerk Seasoning is a dry spice rub that mimics the Jerk flavours of Allspice and Scotch Bonnetts,  which are incredibly hot, without all the heat.  It is the combination of floral allspice, savoury onions and garlic, with the heat of peppers, along with the manner that Jerk is cooked that I really enjoy.  Normally grilled to achieve the smokiness, with the right seasoning mix you can get the flavour without the fuss.

Jerk chicken is the most well known dish that uses this rub, however it’s certainly not limited to that.  Pork, Seafood and Vegetables are all well suited to Jerk seasoning.
