Jamaica Sun Jerk Seasoning
Jamaica Sun has devised its blend of jerk seasoning to bring you the traditional flavour and aroma that was achieved hundreds of years ago.
To get the heart and soul of Jamaica into your cooking, slit the meat and rub in 2 tablespoons of our seasoning for every 500g of chicken, meat or fish. Ideally marinate overnight before barbequing, grilling or slowly roasting.
Then relax and enjoy!
Once opened keep refrigerated and use within 3 month.
Ingredients: Scallions, Hot Peppers, Salt, Black Pepper, Pimento, Nutmeg, Citric Acid, Sugar, Thyme.
The Maroons, runaway slaves who escaped during the British invasion of 1655 to the mountains of Jamaica, created jerk, the spicey yet sweet smokey seasoning and cooking method. Wild boar was the usual target and once caught they would smother the pork with a mix of spices (the seasoning). They then slow cooked the meat over a pit of smoking pimento wood and coals covering the cooking pits to minimise the possibility of smoke alerting the invaders to their location (the method).
