Dry Jerk Spice Rub

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.

Yield: About 1/2 cup (serving size: about 1 teaspoon)
