  • 1 cup mango nectar
  • 2/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper (seeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt and black pepper


  • Cut jalapeno in half and remove the seeds, chop into smaller chunks. I highly recommend wearing food-safe gloves when handling hot peppers.
  • Place jalapeno and lime juice into a food processor or blender, and puree mixture.
  • Add all sauce ingredients, including jalapeno puree, into a medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to low and simmer for an additional 5-6 minutes until sauce can coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove sauce from heat and cool for a 5 minutes before using. This glaze can also be used as a dipping sauce or table sauce.
  • If making ahead of time, store sauce in a jar or air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week after initial preparation. Rewarm before using. Discard any sauce that has come into contact with raw or undercooked meat.
