Tip #1

Flavors of the Caribbean often contain complex-tasting spice mixtures like jerk seasoning, which combines herbs such as thyme with spices like cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and ginger. Because the seasoning mixtures can be spicy-hot, common side dishes include starchy, bland items such as rice, beans and pumpkin.
