Pickapeppa Jamaican Jerk Seasoning and have been wondering when it will be back in stock at the Carolina Sauce Company, I'm afraid I have bad news: The folks at Pickapeppa don't expect to have any available until February 2011. This morning I received word from our supplier that Pickapeppa had notified them of this problem -- Pickapeppa has been out of stock for some time -- but did not give any reason why they weren't going to produce any more of this product until next year. So now you know as much as we do about what's going on, which unfortunately isn't much other than the fact that Pickapeppa Jerk Seasoning won't be back on the market for at least a few more months.
In the meantime, if you are craving the exotic, aromatic and fiery flavors of Jamaica, check out the different Jamaican jerk seasonings that we do have in stock for you at Carolina Sauce. Of course we have the ever-popular Walkerswood jerk products as well as the venerable old Busha Browne's jerk products. But two lesser-known jerk sauces are actually my personal favorites: First, there's Pluto's Certified Organic Jerk Sauces which are made in North Carolina by Pluto, a Jamaican ex-pat who brought his authentic homeland recipes when he moved to NC. Pluto's Jerk Sauces are intensely delicious and made with the finest all-natural, organic ingredients, and are excellent for marinating and cooking. Available in Mild and Hot, Pluto's jerk sauces come with a FREE recipe brochure AND they're also currently on sale. Another favorite of mine is Tortuga Jamaican Jerk Sauce, a versatile, moderately spicy but richly flavored jerk sauce that can be used at the table as well as for marinating and cooking. With only 30mg of sodium per Tablespoon, it qualifies as "very low sodium" like the unavailable Pickapeppa Jerk did. And at only $3.75 a bottle, the Tortuga Jerk Sauce is a real steal! I hope you'll try one or more of these tasty Jamaican jerks while we wait for Pickapeppa to bring back theirs....
