I used to buy jerk sauce. All store-bought sauces and marinades are awful.
Then, I got into home-made sauces that I'd pick up at street-markets in the Carribbean islands whenever I went there.
Then I found a Jamaican stand at a local market at home - with amazing sauces - absolutely the best!... but the family that ran the stand stopped shut it down last year.
This sauce is the closest to that home-made sauce I'd get at the markets!
Have you made it? What'd you think?
