Thanks for posting this recipe. I've been looking for a jerk seasoning recipe since I haven't been able to find the McCormick seasoning I used to buy. Next time I might use a little less allspice and nutmeg but I like it either way.

This makes a great jerk seasoning mix. I used it for Paula-Deen-pig-on-a-stick-with-dipping-sauce and it was fantastic. Will definitely keep a batch of this around. I did halve the recipe and it made plenty.

We really enjoyed this jerk seasoning. A first for me. Great flavors. It was spicy so next time I'll ratchet it down a notch (less cayene). DH thought it was perfect. Thanks for posting Pneuma!
