    Great flavor! Used this on the Caribbean Jerk challenge for Zaar World Tour 2007. Our team made kabobs as a team recipe and used this spice mixture as our jerk seasoning. Easily came together and I will be using this again very soon! Thanks Ellie~

    To give you an idea of the versitility of this blend, I used mine with ground beef to make island burgers topped with pineapple salsa. Later this week, I'm planning to use it again to add a little kick to baked sweet potato fries. My only suggestion would be for folks like me, who normally don't cook with much salt, to reduce the amount by a teaspoon. Ellie, another winner here. Thanks.

    This spice mixture taste great anxious to try it on grilled chicken. Very easy to make, I had everything on hand. Used my spice grinder, love it, I even grind my own ground cloves and other spices. Thank you Ellie, for posting the recipe.


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
