Last time I cooked mutton is was with a morrocan spice blend this time heading for the West Indies with a hot & spicy jerk seasoning.
I love jerk seasoning its often used when BBQ, I have written before about my old neighbourhood carnival where everyone pulls out the charcoal BBQ with racks of jerk chicken and pork. There is even a jerk BBQ in the park opposite my work , it always sells out and the smoke drifting across a sea of office workers add a holiday feel to any lunchtime
The weather is still not playing fair though so instead of any BBQ here is a hearty smokin stew with rich gravy , prepared by my lovely boyfriend .
