  Put all ingredients except the scallions and thyme in a blender (or
  food processor) and puree.  Then add the remaining ingredients and
  run the blender until the ingredients are well mixed, but not pureed.
  Makes a little more than 1 cup (enough for about 2 pounds of meat).
  Recipe scales well.  Sauce can be kept refrigerated for a month, or
  frozen for a "long time".
  NOTE: Pickled Habaneros will do just fine if you can't find fresh;
  but I've found that they are not as hot as fresh ones (like maybe
  half as hot).  You could also substitute Habanero-based sauce.  But
  only use sauce that has a low amount of other spices (unless it's
  One of my latest variations uses about 3 Tbs of Alan's Special Mild
  Habanero sauce for flavor; and enough Habaneros or Scotch Bonnet
  sauce to bring the heat up to the right point.
  Jamaican jerk is usually made with Scotch Bonnet chiles, which are
  closely related to the Habanero (they are both of the species
  Capsicum Chinense), but harder to find (for me anyway). I'm not sure
  of the taste differences. + To judge the heat, taste when it's all
  mixed together and add more if you want it hotter.  It's hard to tell
  how hot the final product will be the first time you make this, but
  you will get used to judging the heat eventually. For me, the right
  level is achieved when 1/8 tsp of the jerk sauce is enough to make me
  want water (but I'm used to capsaicin).
