Sugarcane Marinade Recipe-4707

Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


An all-purpose barbecue-style marinade that is great with chicken, quail, and duck. I like it so much that I use it on the chicken when I make my Tortilla Soup.

Yield: Makes 4½ cups


  • 1½ cups dark molasses
  • ¾ cup Spanish sherry vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ cup Creole mustard
  • 1½ cups top-quality canned tomato sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Scotch bonnet chiles, stemmed, seeded, and minced
  • ¾ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons peeled and minced ginger
  • 1½ teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg


In a food processor, combine all the ingredients, and pulse until smooth. Refrigerate until needed; this keeps for 1 month.
