Jerk Rub

1 onion finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped scallion
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon allspice (In Jamaica, allspice is called “pimento”)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 to 6 hot peppers, finely ground (Habanero ideal, otherwise Jalepeno)
1 teaspoon black pepper

Mix together to make a paste (food processor ideal). Smear all over chicken, pork, fish, whatever. Let sit for a while. Keep leftover rub in a jar in the frig.
