  • 1 head of garlic
  • ¾ tablespoon olive oil
  • cup water
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1⅓ cups dark brown sugar
  • tablespoons lemon juice
  • tablespoons minced white onion
  • ¾ tablespoon Jack Daniels® Whiskey
  • ¾ tablespoon crushed pineapple
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Recipe Instructions

  • Cut about 1 cm off the top of the garlic head. Trim the roots so that the garlic bulb will sit flat. Remove the papery skin from the garlic, but leave enough so that the cloves stay together. Put garlic into a small casserole dish or baking pan, drizzle olive oil over it, and cover with a lid or foil. Bake in a preheated 160°C oven for 1 hour. Remove garlic and let it cool until you can handle it.
  • Combine water, pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over a medium - high heat. Stir occasionally until the mixture boils then reduce heat until mixture is just simmering.
  • Squeeze the sides of the head of garlic until the pasty roasted garlic pulp is squeezed out. Measure 2 teaspoons into the saucepan and whisk to combine. Add remaining ingredients to the pan and stir.
  • Let mixture simmer for 40-50 minutes or until sauce has reduced by about ½ and is thick and syrupy. Make sure it doesn't boil over.
