    large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1

  • 3/4 cup (188 mL)

    ketchup

    dark brown sugar

How to make

  • Step 1

    Jerk paste: Blend together roughly chopped garlic, the bay leaves, green onions, chili pepper, roughly chopped ginger, soy sauce, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, tamarind paste, light brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, salt and cloves in food processor or blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down bowl as needed. Transfer 1/3 cup (83 mL) of the paste to small bowl; cover and refrigerate until needed to make barbecue sauce.

  • Step 2

    Turkey: Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Remove netting from thawed turkey crown; rub turkey all over with the remaining jerk paste (about 1 cup/250 mL paste). Place turkey, breast-side up, on rack in roasting pan. Bake uncovered, covering loosely with foil in last 30 minutes, until thickest part of turkey reads 180°F (82°C), centre of stuffing reads 165°F (74°C) and juices run clear, 2-1/2 to 3 hours.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, prepare Barbecue sauce: Heat oil in small saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic, the onion and minced ginger; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add ketchup, dark brown sugar and the reserved 1/3 cup (83 mL) jerk paste; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Let cool completely. Transfer to food processor or blender; blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down side of bowl as needed.

  • Step 4

    Remove turkey from oven; let rest, covered loosely with foil, 10 – 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with barbecue sauce.

  • Try this:

    Serve with a loaf of crusty white bread.
