1/2 cup agave nectar

1/2 cup mirin 

1/2 cup molasses 

1/2 cup sherry vinegar 

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce 

1/4 cup loosely packed brown sugar 

5 cardamom pods 

2 cinnamon sticks 

1 bay leaf 

1 Thai chile

1 star anise 


  1. Combine the agave, mirin, molasses, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf, chile and star anise in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer and reduce to a glaze, 10 to 15 minutes. Strain, discarding the solids.
  2. Use as a glaze for baked ham, or when cooking lamb, chicken or pork. Warm before using, so the glaze coats the meat evenly.
