2 tablespoons chopped garlic 

1 tablespoon chopped ginger 

10 sprigs thyme, leaves stripped 

1 Scotch bonnet or habanero pepper, stemmed  

1 tablespoon black pepper 

1 tablespoon brown sugar 

1 teaspoon salt 

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

Curried Goat:

5 pounds goat leg, cut into 2-inch cubes

5 tablespoons West Indian/Caribbean curry powder 

1 cup vegetable oil

Directions

  1. For the wet jerk seasoning: To a blender, add the onions, garlic, ginger, thyme, Scotch bonnet, black pepper, brown sugar, salt, allspice, cayenne and 1 1/2 cups water. Blend well.
