    Default Tequila-Jalapeno Glaze

    This is a tasty glaze recipe by Jim Tarantino. It's for shrimp, chicken wings, pork chops or cutlets, baby back ribs, or spareribs. It should be used as a baste during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

    Yield: 1 cup Glaze

    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup tequila
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    Grated zest and juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup juice)
    1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon ancho chile powder
    1/4 cup jalapeno jelly (melted until liquid)

    In a saucepan, add the maple syrup, tequila, vinegar, lime zest and juice, brown sugar, ancho chile powder and jalapeno jelly. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 30 minutes, until reduced to 1 cup. Cool the glaze, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. It will keep for about 3 weeks.To use the glaze after refrigerating, warm it over medium heat, stirring occassionally.

    Hey CR,
    I don't like jalapeno; does anyone make a habanera jelly or some other kind? It's not the heat but the flavor itself. Any advice?

    Serrano or any other green chile would work before habanero. Places like Whole Foods or other specialty markets would have these jellies. Or, you could always make them. Try eating a PBJ with that!

    Thanks! I do like serrenos. And we do have Whole Foods; just weak liquor stores.

    shoppersvineyard.com is great with affordable shipping rates and heavily discounted bottles - wineandliquordepot.com has an outstanding selection with slightly more pricy shipping rates, at least for me in NJ. Check them out and let me know if you decide to buy anything. I just bought 5 bottles locally and through shoppersvineyard.

    I'll keep that in mind but I just brought several bottles back from Mexico:
    Dona Carlota Anejo
    Gran Centenario Reserva del Tequilero Anejo
    Los Azulejos Anejo
    Real de Penjamo Anejo
    Realeza Mexicana Anejo
    Jose Cuervo 209 Tradicional Reposado (a gift)
    As well as a whole case of La Pinta Pomegrante Infused Tequila

    Have you compared tequila purchased in Mexico to the same bought here in the states?
