Did you catch our guest post from Marie Maguire earlier this week about her favorite seasonings, all made in North Carolina?  She called out Pluto's Jerk Seasoning as one that she would not even leave the country without having a bottle in her suitcase.  That's a pretty strong endorsement!

It certainly piqued my interest and the next day, I found myself on the phone with Pluto himself.  He wants the USA Love List readers to have the chance to try his Caribbean sauces and seasonings so he is offering a huge gift basket containing one of each of his products. This is a good one, so enter to win.

Made in North Carolina

What a treat it is to talk directly to the businesspeople and entrepreneurs making their products in the USA. Pluto's products are all natural, produced in North Carolina, 100% vegan, and contain no MSG or GMO ingredients. Are you thinking about getting your grill out for the season? Are you looking for a unique American made Father's Day gift? You need to get to know Jerk.

What is Jerk Seasoning?

Coincidentally, I'm just back from a trip to Jamaica and I am now officially obsessed with Jerk. I want it on everything. Meat, obviously, but also potatoes, dressings, eggs, anything I can think of.  It is flavorful with seasonings, but only spicy in the “Hot” versions.  It comes in the form of spice rubs, marinades, or barbecue sauces.  Pluto's website describes the origins of jerk:

Centuries ago, before the refrigeration system was developed, sailors needed food for their long journey across the seas. The Arawak Indians and their ancestors, some of the first settlers of Jamaica, discovered an all-natural method of preserving meats using only blends of herbs and spices. The result was the fragrant and exotic Jamaican Jerk – a savory contribution to the culinary world, to be enjoyed on all of your favorite foods!
