Dry Jerk Spice Rub

Yield About 1/2 cup (serving size: about 1 teaspoon)
Traditional in Jamaican kitchens, jerk seasoning packs a hot punch that is mellowed by the sweetness of sugar and perfume of spices such as cinnamon and allspice. To tame the heat, cut back on the ground red pepper. You can use this rub with pork, chicken, or fish.

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ground red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground thyme
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground star anise
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
