Jamaican flavors combine with the heat of Scotch Bonnet peppers from a certified organic family farm to make this iconic marinade with a kick.
Marinade chicken or pork by combining the sauce and meat in a container, then refrigerating for at least a few hours (ideally overnight). Remove meat from the container and cook on the grill. For extra favor, drizzle with additional sauce from the jar as you serve it.
This sauce also makes a killer dip for veggies, crackers, and pitas. Combine ¼ cup of the Jerk Marinade with an 8 oz. container of sour cream and stir in ¼ to ½ cup of finely chopped cornichons (the little pickles you typically find on a charcuterie board). Chill and enjoy.
