I recently pick up a jar of Grace’s jerk seasoning (center) from Superstore and I was shocked by how good it was! While it was very spicy (this is to be expected with jerk seasoning), it was full of flavours unique to Caribbean cuisine. Jerk seasoning principally relies upon two items: allspice (called “pimento” in Jamaica) and Scotch bonnet peppers (among the hottest peppers on the Scoville scale). The seasoning also includes cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, and garlic, salt, pepper.
I made jerk chicken by covering six chicken thighs with 3 tablespoons of Grace’s jerk seasoning and baking the chicken in the over for around 25 minutes at 375F.
The chicken was spicy, moist and delicious! It also froze and re-heated well.
