Directions
  • 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.
  • 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 occasionally
  • Yield: 1 cup Glaze
