This makes about 3 cups of marinade and it can be stored in the fridge for about 1 month.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Deseed and roughly chop the Scotch Bonnet Peppers (2) . Most of the heat is within the seeds and the membrane in the pepper, however, so if you want that true authentic Jamaican feel keep the entire peppers.
Step 2
Rough chop the Scallions (5) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Onion (1) , and Fresh Thyme (5 sprigs) and place in the food processor to make it easier to puree.
Step 3
Now add the Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) , Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Ground Allspice (1/2 Tbsp) , Ground Nutmeg (1 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) , Soy Sauce (1/3 cup) , Vegetable Oil (2 Tbsp) , Distilled White Vinegar (1/4 cup) , Orange Juice (1/2 cup) and Fresh Ginger (1 tsp) and pulse to start. Then run the puree speed for about 2-3 minutes until everything breaks down to a smooth consistency.
Step 4
For best results use this sauce immediately, but marinate your pork, chicken or fish (haven’t tried beef yet) for at least 2 hours before grilling or roasting in the oven.
