  • 1 cup Coke Classic
  • 1/4 cup juice from 2 limes
  • 2 cups packed dark or light brown sugar
  • 2 medium jalapeno chiles, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices


  1. Bring Coke Classic, lime juice, brown sugar and jalapenos to boil in small nonreactive saucepan over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until syrupy and reduced to about 1 1/3 cups, 5-7 minutes.
  2. Glaze will thicken as it cools between bastings; heat over medium heat about 1 minute, stirring once or twice, before using.

Yield: 1 1/3 cups
