Secondly we have the Ginger Root. It maybe considered one of the most versatile spices on the list. It is often times used in addition to other spices to marinate meats; such as pork and beef and is also added to a variety of curry related dishes. The flavor is one of a kind and cannot be substituted. Ginger is also added to a variety of juices like Mango and Pineapple for an extra dimension of flavor.
Lastly we have Thyme. This herb ''likkle but it talawah''. It can be identified by its semi minty fragrance and is popularly used in stews, soups and a variety of vegan and non vegan related dishes. It is known for its fragrant aroma and value added effect it has on each prepared dish. Thyme is very versatile and is used on a variety of meats not limited to chicken , fish, beef and mutton and is a very important ingredient when cooking the Jamaican Sunday special, Rice and Peas.
