T​he sun is shining (about time!), and now we're allowed to meet-up with friends and family in different households, barbecues are well and truly back on the agenda for summer. Hurray!

B​ut forget grilling the usual sausages and bland burgers. Why not put some thought into your grill come back and try something with a bit of spice? Courtesy of Grace Foods, we are sharing this insanely delicious recipe for Jerk Mango BBQ pork chops that should be right at the top of your grilling agenda.

I​n case you're not familiar with jerk, it's a traditional Jamaican method of seasoning and cooking meats, vegetables or tofu, with its ingredients rooted in Jamaica’s fertile green landscape. In the one we're using today, you'll find a mix of spring onions, onions, scotch bonnet peppers, salt, thyme, allspice, black pepper and many other spices, which together give a real burst of flavour.

T​he best thing about Grace Jerk seasoning is that it's 100% authentic and arrives directly from their manufacturing centre in Jamaica. And although their Jamaican jerk seasoning is most commonly used for jerk chicken, it can also be used as a jerk marinade or rub for pork, shrimp, fish, beef, or veggies alternatives (including vegetables). G​race Foods started in Jamaica in 1922 as small traders, so by now they seriously know what they're doing.
