Jalapeño-Ginger Glaze

Yield MAKES ABOUT 3/4 CUP
This spicy glaze is a great holiday present for anyone who relishes a quick hit of heat. Refrigerate it for up to one week.

Ingredients

  • 1 scallion, white and tender green only, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup hot pepper jelly, preferably jalapeño pepper jelly (6 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar

How to Make It

  1. On a work surface, using the side of a large knife, mash the scallion, garlic and ginger with the sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt until a coarse paste forms. Transfer the paste to a small saucepan. Stir in the hot pepper jelly and vinegar and bring to a boil. Transfer to a glass jar and let cool. Applications: Brush on chicken, pork chops, spareribs and pork tenderloin during the last few minutes of grilling, broiling or roasting and cook until glossy.
