Pickapeppa Jamaican Jerk Seasoning is Back!

Fans of authentic Jamaican cooking rejoice: The Pickapeppa Company of Jamaica has brought back its Jamaican jerk seasoning, with a new & improved recipe that's truly a genuine Jamaican jerk paste! Pickapeppa Jamaican Jerk Seasoning is made with all-natural ingredients in keeping with time-honored Jamaican traditions, including fiery hot scotch bonnet peppers, aromatic Jamaican allspice (pimento) and thyme plus other herbs & spices, escallions, cane sugar and cane vinegar. There are no artificial preservatives or fillers in this recipe, and the flavor is intensely rich, complex, savory and subtly sweet, with a healthy peppery kick.

Legend has it that jerk originally was developed by Jamaica's first inhabitants, the Tainos, and was later enhanced and perfected by the "Maroons", escaped African slaves who fought the British in the 17th century. Pickapeppa Jerk Seasoning is a versatile wet rub or paste that can be used on pretty much anything: meat (pork, lamb, goat, beef, venison), chicken & other poultry, fish and shellfish, and even vegetables like summer squash, mushrooms, peppers & onions, and rice dishes. As a general rule of thumb, use between 1 and 2 tablespoons of this concentrated jerk paste per pound of meat or chicken or fish, adjusting the amount to taste. Rub on, place in your refrigerator to marinate (anywhere from 30 minutes for fish to a few hours or overnight for meat), and then grill, broil, roast, crockpot, etc. Enjoy with hot white rice for an authentic Jamaican meal.

Pickapeppa Jamaican Jerk Seasoning is now available online at the Carolina Sauce Company, and it's currently on sale!

Zestfully yours,

PS: Pickapeppa Jamaican Jerk Seasoning has 0 grams of sodium per serving, in case you're looking for a very low sodium jerk paste...
