Jamaican Jerk Rub

This rub gives chicken, pork, or snapper—or whatever else you’re grilling—a classic Jamaican flavor without any fuss.

2 Tbsp granulated onion

2 Tbsp dried onion flakes (get flakes that aren’t too big)

1 Tbsp  15 mL ground dried thyme

1 Tbsp Johnny’s Jamaica Me Crazy Seasoning

2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp cayenne or chipotle powder for an extra kick!

Double or quadruple this recipe so you have some on hand!

P.S. It’s super easy to make a great jerk marinade simply by whizzing 1/2 cup of this rub in a food processor with a splash of cooking oil, a chopped habañero chile, a chopped onion, and some chopped scallions!
