A type of dry seasoning that is native to the Caribbean. It's primarily used in preparing meat — most commonly pork and chicken — for grilling. Although the ingredients can vary, it generally consists of chilies, thyme, spices (cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves), garlic, and onions. The seasoning can be directly applied to the meat or mixed with a liquid to create a marinade.
