Some of the best spicy chicken seasoning and pork seasoning comes straight out of Jamaican cuisine, and we've captured culinary lightning in a bottle with our delicious Jerk seasoning. This delicious spice blend gets its name not from mean bullies, but from the traditional preparation of charqui, a Spanish word for dried, spiced meat that would later become "jerky" in the English language. The meat would be poked with a sharp skewer - "jerked" - and spices would be rubbed into those cavities before the meat was cooked, ensuring every delicious bite was filled with flavor.
USimplySeason's Salt Free Jamaican Jerk Seasoning is handcrafted in the United States from spicy scotch bonnet chilies to savory garlic and ginger.
