The Marvels of Jamaican Jerk

Leave a comment

Today, while skimming the online version of The Times, I got a sweet surprise: an in depth article regarding the Jamaican style of cooking that is similar (but not the same) to American barbecue — Jamaican Jerk. Personally, I think that Jamaican Jerk is far better that any American BBQ, due to the way in which the food is prepared. I am talking about good Jamaican Jerk, done the right way, with the pimento wood and pimento leaves (both burned to smoke the meat throughly, during the cooking process) , and the correct seasoning—pound for pound some good s***,lols

I remember growing up in Jamaica, the jerk huts would be in various places: the country side, (visiting my extended family), near the markets, and close to the bus station. On Fridays especially, all the huts would open and the jerk fragrances would permeate the air.

I really appreciated the article today. Once my parents came home I immediately told them about the article, and the pride came across their faces: their sweet culture, once again, appreciated by the masses.

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~
