Fierce in heat and flavor! Not for the timid! The intensity of the super spicy scotch bonnets are justified by the breadth and depth of flavor in the whole combination of herbs and spices. The only thing I didn't add was nutmeg (only because I couldn't find it in my pantry!) This rub will be the base for a Caribbean chicken and rice dish. Prepared for ZWT5 Team Jammin Java Jivers.
