Seasoning mixes are so nice to have on hand for quickly flavoring a dish, but the kinds you buy at the store are teeming with refined sugar, salt, and maybe even preservatives, artificial colors, or textural additives. The only way to be truly certain of what is in your seasoning is by making it yourself! Use this jerk seasoning as a flavor crust on veggie burgers, sprinkle it over grains and vegetables, or maybe even use it in salads and slaws.
