Raw Spice Bar is a subscription box that delivers spices to your door every month. The spices are centered around a monthly theme and are made just days before being shipped out. The country theme for June was Jamaica, and that definitely means some yummy jerk spices!
Subscription Box: Raw Spice Bar
Cost: $6 / month
Shipping: FREE in US and Canada
What you get: each month you receive 3 different spice blends and some information and recipes on how to use them.
Jamaican Jerk Spices
I love fish tacos and I love Jerk anything. Match made in heaven! I made these over the weekend and they were really yummy but sadly I forgot to take pics to share with you all. I’m going to have to make them again and take some pics because they were really delicious and worth sharing
Perfect for summer grilling season, jerk refers to the preparation of meat or seafood with a wet or dry rub. This rub has African origins, while thyme, nutmeg and spicy chiles found in the Caribbean were included over time. Use this blend to create a jerk paste for marinating chops, ribs, chicken, shrimp or kebabs.
Mango Salsa Spices
Corn and Mango aren’t two things that I would ever put together but they worked really well and the salsa was delicious. That’s the great thing about RawSpiceBar you get to try different things you wouldn’t have otherwise.
Use these spices to create a spicy Jamaican style mango salsa that is a beautiful blend of sweet and spicy and pairs perfectly with a jerk dish of fish, shrimp or chicken. This spice blend can be used on other tropical fruits or light, citrusy salad.
JAMAICAN SWEET SPICES
This blend of spices is created specifically for creating a sweet, light dessert. Banana fritters, a Jamaican specialty, are jazzed up with cinnamon, nutmeg and chile peppers plus a mixture of toasted black and white sesame seeds for a hint of nuttiness.
I think the June RawSpiceBar is my favourite theme so far! I definitely will be making these dishes again. For $6/ month I really recommend this subscription, it’s an affordable and fun way to mix things up in your kitchen.
