Flavors of Jamaica
Total time: 1hr to 2hr

Time required: A little over 2 hours

Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note
One of the jamaican favorite ways to eat chicken is baked or roasted, served with Spanish rice and a bit of mango chutney.
The piece of dried tamarind in this recipe definitely imparts an authentic flavour, but depending on what's available, you could also use fresh or preserved, or leave it out completely.

- 125 ml (1/2 cup) boiling water
- 1 piece of dried tamarind

- 250 ml (1 cup) sugar
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. allspice
- 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh chili
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  1. Soak the piece of tamarind in the boiling water for one hour;
  2. using the back of a spoon, break up the tamarind as much as possible into its soaking liquid; strain through a fine cloth;
