Profile: Jerk spice is a Jamaican cooking method. So you can tell your dinner guests that you jerked a bird for them. For foodies with a sense of humour, this is as crucial as the dry jerk seasoning's pungent flavor.
Jerk seasoning is a Jamaican and Caribbean dry or wet rub used to prepare meat. The rub is an odd concoction with a terrible past. Indeed, jerk seasoning originated as an African spice rub that slaves brought to the Caribbean. As people and cultures crossed the Atlantic, spices like thyme, nutmeg, and cloves were added. The use of Scotch Bonnet peppers instead of milder chiles intensified the heat.
