Jamaican Jerk Sauce

This recipe is from Vegan Fire and Spice by Robin Robertson.

Recipe: see page 45 of Vegan Fire and Spice.
The taste of the molasses, rum and soy sauce are very prominent in this recipe. They give the
sauce a flavor that is dark, rich and sweet. I used the sauce with Trader Joe's Beef-less Strips and it was quite good. The strips are rather flavorless, but have a texture that kind of resembles meat and makes them conducive to absorbing the flavors in sauces, marinades and rubs.

Ingredients: onion, hot chiles (serrano is used here), garlic, olive oil, soy sauce, cider vinegar, molasses, dark rum (Myers is used here), sugar, ground allspice, dried thyme, ground nutmeg.
