Island Jerk Blend
Spicy-hot and sweet, our Island Jerk Blend brings the taste of the Caribbean to your backyard grill. The robust flavors of hot chile pepper, allspice, and other traditional Jamaican spices combine with sugar to make the perfect basis for your next marinade or dry rub.
Jerk is traditional Jamaican technique in which meats are dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. The word jerk refers to both the spice rub and to the particular cooking technique. Traditionally, jerk chicken, pork, or fish was smoked in pit fires over wood charcoal, and later using repurposed oil barrels. Nowadays, Jamaicans grill jerked meats with steel drum jerk pans.
You can create authentic Jamaican Jerk meats [and tofu or tempeh if that's more your style!] with Island Jerk Blend. Use Island Jerk Blend as a dry rub, or whisk in with a little olive oil or citrus juice to make a wonderful marinade for grilling. Island Jerk Blend is gluten free.
