Dave's Gourmet Jammin' Jerk

I would never profess to know a lot about Jamaican cooking, in fact I probably know very little, but I’ve had my fair share of Jerk dishes and hopefully that stands me in reasonable stead to give Dave’s Jammin’ Jerk Sauce a go.

There is one criticism that always seems to get levelled at Jerk dishes in this country; they’re never hot enough. Almost every time I eat Jerk with friends someone will pipe up that its not very hot and they’re usually right, I think when you have Jerk food you expect some real spice, often the heat just isn’t there. That is the crutch of the problem I have with Dave’s take on Jerk – its just not HOT! Its not unpleasant just not what I’d expect form a Jerk sauce, second down on the list of ingredients are Red Habaneros and third down are spices so I’m not sure how they’ve managed to make it quite so bland. It may be that this sauce is aimed at those who don’t like too much spice but I’d be surprised seeing as this is a ‘Dave’s’ product.

Sorry Dave, I’m disappointed with you on this occasion, if there was anyone I thought I could trust Jerk in the hands of, it would be you.
