Chef John Folse's Raspberry Jalapeno Glaze

Raspberry Jalapeno Glaze

PREP TIME: 40 minutes Makes:  4 cups


Use as a finishing touch to your grilled or broiled kabobs to give them a sweet finish.  Don't put in to too early as the sugar can quickly caramelize or burn.


1 cup fresh or frozen raspberry

1 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup fresh jalapenos, finely minced

1/4 cup soy sauce

4 cups sugar

1 cup raspberry/cranberry juice cocktail


In a 3-quart non-reactive, heavy-bottomed sauce pot, add all ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until the sugar has melted and the sauce has reduced to 4 cups and coats the back of a spoon, about 20 - 30 minutes.  Serve with kabobs of your choice.
