Jerk seasoning is popular in Jamaican and Caribbean cuisine and refers to the preparation of meat with an earthy, spicy dry or wet rub. The rub is a strange mix that has a dark history. Unquestionably, jerk seasoning began as an African spice rub that was adapted by slaves transported throughout the Caribbean. As various peoples and nationalities traveled through the Atlantic the recipe changed with spices like thyme, nutmeg, and cloves being added. Heat increased dramatically when people began to add Scotch Bonnet peppers in lieu of tamer chiles.
We classify our Jamaican jerk seasoning from our regular jerk seasoning in that this one has a lot of chile pepper blended in. If you're looking for something with a bit of ground scotch bonnet, plenty of paprika, and a hefty dose of cayenne, then this will scorch your tongue into a cinder just fine.
