Yummy. I cut down on the cayenne a lot, since what I have is African bird pepper and has 90,000 heat units... I think I used about 1/4 tsp and it was still kickin'. I followed Cookgirl's suggestion and used this to rub a pound of firm tofu. I was really generous with the rub and coated the tofu very well and used a full recipe for the pound. I baked the tofu at 400 for about 1/2 an hour and it turned out great. Nice and flavorful. The flavor was nice and pretty well balanced between sweet and spicy. I think it would be a great idea to marinade your meat (or tofu!) in some lime juice, then rub with this or sprinkle some lime juice over top after cooking... I did feel it needed a bit of tang. But overall, very good!

Excellent! My DH hates "spicy, " so I left out the cayenne, but otherwise made according to the recipe.

Tasty and spicy! I made it just as written and used it for jerk chicken. Yum! I will definitely make this again and again.

I used this recipe to make Nurse Di's Spicy Chicken Hoagies #77279 which was perfect as it made the exact amount I needed for that recipe. No need to by an expensive seasoning blend when this recipe works well and is delish. Thank you Sue L for sharing the recipe.

Yummy! I couldn't find any Jerk seasoning to buy so I tried this recipe. I actually had everything in my cupboard, so it's nice that it is made with everyday ingredients. I was a little nervous about the heat, so cut down on the cayenne a bit, but will probably be bolder next time. I have to try this seasoning on lots of different things!

A good, all purpose jerk seasoning for many recipes. I decrease the amount of salt by at least half, sometimes eliminating it all together. I like that it's a dry rub so that I can prepare a bigger batch that can be saved in my spice cupboard for later use. I use this jerk recipe in MEAN'S picadillo Cubano Chicken with Spicy Currant Picadillo every time. Try it on tofu! MMMmmm!! Also wonderful for gift giving. I make up different spice mixes for friends and family for the Holidays and use only as much salt as I want. They appreciate that. Thanks, Sue L. Keep up the good work! CG ;)
