Three Chiles




Jerk Seasoning

Originating on the Caribbean island of Jamaica this aromatic seasoning blend was used to preserve foods that would otherwise quickly spoil in the absence of any means of refrigeration.  The specifics of the blend vary widely, but all usually contain a combination of allspice, cinnamon, clove, thyme and, of course, chiles.  The seasoning blend can be used as a dry rub, or they may be combined with a liquid to form a marinade.
