Spiced Butter Rum Marinade
by Shore Lunch

Really now, how could I see this on the supermarket shelf and NOT buy it? It’s made with rum and has a pirate on it, for cryin’ out loud! I slathered it all over my dinner that very night. Fortunately it was barbeque chicken night – had it been speghetti night things might have turned ugly. Sadly, the bottle is the best part of this marinade.

The flavor claims to be “rum butter,” but the butter was all I tasted. And butter just doesn’t seem like an appealing barbeque flavor. I was ready to write this stuff off, but then it was suggested I might try marinading corn on the cob with it next time around. Now there’s an idea! I’ll let you know how it turns out.
