Origin & History
Jerk is both a seasoning and a style of cooking that began in Jamaica with the Arawak Indians who smoked and roasted their meats. After the arrival of the British, escaped African slaves formerly owned by the Spanish began to hunt wild hogs and cook meat using similar cooking techniques with African spices. This evolved into the jerk cooking tradition that can be found today in small jerk huts all over the Caribbean.
