So sometime last year when I was still living in New York I decided to learn how to make my own Caribbean Jerk Sauce. The area that I lived in had about two Caribbean restaurants that sold jerk chicken but they both tasted more sweet than spicy and I like my food to have a little kick to it.
I started researching online and in books how to make my own sauce and YouTube was a huge help! No seriously you can find almost anything on there! So I took a few different recipes and mixed and match a few ingredients until I was able to come up with something of my own! I absolutely love this recipe and have used it on chicken, steaks and on my veggies to give it a little extra flavor! It’s so easy to make trust me!
Check out the recipe below!
3-5 sticks (whatever they are called) of scallions
1 whole tomato
4-5 scotch bonnet peppers (Hotter) 2-3 (mild when deseeded)
1 whole white onion
1 tbsp. ginger (you can use the powder)
2 garlic gloves or 2 tsp. of powder
1 cup of pineapple juice
3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper (add 1/2 of cayenne of you want)
1 tsp. thyme
2 tsp. all spice
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. oil (vegetable preferably)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup browning
Here’s the fun part! Just put everything in a blender and viola you’re done!
