This Jamaican Jerk Seasoning blend is made right at home. Save your money and make your own with a kick from a blend of spices such as cayenne pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg to name a few.
Today I have something different to share with you, a spice blend recipe. I usually don’t share these types of recipes with you but I think I should because many times you guys will comment or email me and ask me for certain spice blend or sauce recipes. So hopefully you guys like these posts and want more.
Today’s spice blend is a dry Jamaican Jerk seasoning or spice blend which is amazing and I usually have a hard time finding this at my local grocery store, so this time I decided to make my own. I have many spice blends in my spice cabinet that I make myself and I love them because you can get as creative as you want and you can customize them for your taste palate.
The spices I used in this blend are quite common and I’m betting you have most of them in your pantry already. There are no weird spices here and most of them you probably already use in your everyday cooking. I actually wanted some Jamaican Jerk seasoning for this recipe with prawns, but there are so many things you can add this spice to. I’m looking forward to some jerk chicken, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
