Jamaican jerk spice, commonly referred to as “jerk seasoning” or simply “jerk,” is a distinctive and flavorful blend of spices and herbs originating from Jamaica, a Caribbean island nation. This spice mixture is renowned for its bold and complex flavors, which are deeply rooted in the culinary traditions of the region. Jerk spice is most famously associated with jerk-style cooking, a traditional Jamaican method of seasoning and grilling meats, particularly chicken and pork.
The primary characteristic of jerk spice is its intense and fiery flavor profile, combining the rich and aromatic notes of various spices with a noticeable kick of heat.
