  • Jerk Seasoning


    Jerk is the traditional style of barbecue in Jamaica in which meat is dry rubbed or wet marinated with a spice mixture called "jerk seasoning". Traditionally applied to pork and chicken, you can also use jerk seasoning to spice up hamburgers, fish, shrimp, shellfish, beef, sausage, lamb, vegetables and tofu. The term Jerk also comes from the action of jerking which refers to poking meat with holes so that flavor is more easily absorbed. Mixed from: onion, thyme, sea salt, paprika, sugar, ground allspice, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, crushed red pepper, ground cinnamon and soybean oil.
