Jerk Spices & Fabulous Jamaican Jerk Spiced Nuts

by Gourmet Food World
Jerk Spices & Fabulous Jamaican Jerk Spiced Nuts

This blistering city summer gets us hankering for warm breezes in our hair, soft sand between our toes, and delicious regional cuisines. Instead of concentrating on work, we found ourselves fantasizing about an island vacation…somewhere divine, like the gorgeous beaches of Jamaica. And, because we are also constantly thinking about food, the next natural thought after Jamaica was, “oh, Jamaican Jerk spices , yummy!”

Unfortunately, there was nary a Jamaican beach nor restaurant in the horizon for us, but that didn’t mean we couldn’t bring a taste of it to our tiny apartment. So, the challenge arose, how to get the warm heat of Jerk spices into a dish suitable for summer? Something with heat, but also heat-friendly.

Enter the AMAZING Jamaican Jerk Spiced Nuts, by blogger/chef extraordinaire Sue Moran from “The View From Great Island”!

This recipe works on so many levels, it’s amazing. Perfect as a poolside snack with a chilled soda, or for summer cocktails at sunset, these jerk spiced nuts give us a bold taste of the Islands and take old boring cocktail nut mixes to the next level. And her personal twist to the traditional jerk spices of adding a bit of brown sugar to offset the heat, and lemon for contrasting tang? Culinary genius!

Heaven! And definitely tropical and exotic!
