Caribbean Jerk Seasoning |

It’s been a while since I started by working week with a hangover. Now I remember why I don’t do it any more.

If you ever come across a bottle of white wine called Blue Nun – avoid it like the plague! My Official Treat Taster and I shared about a bottle and a half on Sunday afternoon (it was cloudy – what else were we meant to do on a cloudy Sunday afternoon?!) and I haven’t felt this bad in a long time. Like, a really long time. As much as I’m sure you’d love for me to drone on and on about how ill I feel this Monday morning, I’ll skip to telling you about the yummy recipe.

I love love LOVE hot and spicy meat seasonings and this one definitely fits the bill. It’s not so hot that you have to gulp down a glass of water as soon as the fork has touched your lips – who enjoys that? – but it’s absolutely bursting with flavors. If you’re stuck inside because of wet and chilly fall weather, whip up this seasoning and sprinkle it on your chicken/fish/pork/beef/vegetables/tofu/whatever for an instant burst of summer. This seasoning is so much better if the flavors are left to infuse for a couple of days, so if you can wait that long, throw all the ingredients together and store in an air-tight container before using.
