Did something tonight I've not done in quite some time, a Jamaican jerk marinade, or more of a wet rub. Some chicken thigh meat soaked for a couple hours, then onto the grill.
Quite tasty. I have some country style ribs that will go on the grill tomorrow, after marinating all night.
The best part of the prep was toasting the spices - I used coriander seeds, cloves, allspice berries, half a nutmeg, a cinnamon stick, black peppercorns - always a pleasant aroma. Got them toasted, then into the grinder.
Put about 7 - 8 cloves of garlic, an onion, a good handful of green onion, 3 habaneros, thyme, cilantro into the food processor with a splash of soy sauce and some oil. Gave it a good whirl. When it looked about right I opened the top and took a whiff - very nice, fresh aroma, but I was a bit perplexed. I expected more fragrance from the spices, some notes of cinnamon, allspice and such. You know, all those things I toasted and left over there in the grinder.
ps: The above should NOT have taken 20 minutes to post. I type a bit, a while later the characters show up. I type another word or two, some time later they show up. That stupid, useless video has reappeared - DRAT!!!!
