What is jerk?

Jerk is a cooking style native to Jamaica in which meat or vegetables are rubbed with a mega-mixture of spices and slow cooked over pit fires for a deep, smoky taste. Jerk seasoning usually consists of allspice, scotch bonnet peppers (we used traditional red), cloves, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, and scallions.

Plantains

Plantains

Ripe plantains are banana’s sweeter, softer cousin, and are a rich source of fiber, and vitamins A, C, and B6.

Red Peppers

Red Peppers

Just as nutritious as they are bright, red peppers are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, and potassium.
