  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use bird's eye pepper instead of cayenne pepper, if desired. I store the finished seasoning in a sealed glass jar to maintain its pungent smell and freshness. This is so delicious, add it to chicken, beef, or fish as a marinade, or make it into a jerk sauce. Add it to rice, or couscous as a spicy seasoning, or even use as rub for tempeh, or sliced tofu! Fabulous!
