I use Matouk's
Condiments when preparing my dishes.
Top of my list is the pepper sauce. My mother makes
a 'wicked' pepper sauce but in the event I am out of stock, I only
purchase Matouk's peppersauce. Some people season their meats
with the pepper sauce but you have to taste your sauce while cooking
before adding any more pepper sauce.
My daughter introduced me to
the Green Seasoning, and I really like it. I use it to season
my meats and I always add a
little when I am actually cooking my meals.

Jerk seasoning is a seasoning which has been traditionally used in the
curing process of chicken and beef in Jamaica. In addition to being
used to make dried meats, jerk seasoning is also a popular dry rub or
marinade for barbecue, and it may be used on other meats such as pork
as well as vegetarian options like tofu.
Many different forms of jerk seasoning exist throughout the Caribbean,
but most people think specifically of Jamaican jerk when they hear the
words "jerk seasoning." Jamaican jerk is characterized by the use of
allspice and thyme, as well as an abundance of peppers. The heat of the
peppers helped to preserve the meat while it cured, ensuring that it
would be safe to eat, and many people also acquired a taste for hot
food as a result.
A spicy Caribbean version of the English "Piccalilli", filled with
chunks of fresh exotic tropical fruits and vegetables. Ideal with cold
