Jamaican jerk seasoning is world-renowned for its unique flavor that takes barbequing to another level. If you’ve never used Jamaican jerk seasoning, do yourself a favor and try it on chicken, pork, beef, or any other meat at your next barbeque. You won’t be disappointed!
The word "jerk" in jerk seasoning comes from the Spanish term "charqui," which means "dried meat." Jerk was first made by the Arawak Indians, natives of Jamaica who preserved meats in the extreme island heat with indigenous spices and peppers. Jamaican jerk seasoning was born out of this effective curing process, and today there are hundreds of mouth-watering jerk seasonings from Jamaica.
There are many recipes for Jamaican jerk seasoning, and all of them include three main ingredients:
Allspice: Known as the "Jamaican pepper," allspice is native to Jamaica and has a luscious, spicy flavor
Thyme: A fixture in most Caribbean cooking, thyme adds an indefinable richness to the flavor of the meat
Scotch Bonnet Peppers: Orange, small, and incredibly hot, Scotch Bonnet peppers are some of the hottest peppers in the world
Additional ingredients that may be used in Jamaican jerk seasoning include: black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, green onions, soy sauce, garlic, rum, orange juice, lime juice, nutmeg, bay leaves, and brown sugar.
Although chicken and pork are the most popular meats cooked with Jamaican jerk seasoning in the Caribbean, you can also rub the jerk seasoning onto beef, lamb, and even fish, or you can blend Jamaican jerk seasoning with a liquid to make a savory marinade.
After the jerk seasoning has had time to completely permeate the meat, it’s time to cook it up! The most common way to cook Jamaican jerk is to barbeque it, and the traditional method is to roast the meat on low heat for a few hours. This slow-roasting allows the Jamaican jerk seasoning to saturate the meat, and the result is unbelievably tender meat whose flavor is unmatched. Whether you prefer to cook with hot, medium, or mild spices, you can make every barbeque better with jerk seasoning from Jamaica.
