  • In a blender, puree the scallions, garlic, bay leaves, Scotch bonnets, lime juice, thyme, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, peppercorns, salt, allspice, cinnamon and cloves. Rub the seasoning all over the pork butt and place in a roasting pan with the water. Cover the pan tightly with foil and roast until the pork is very tender when pierced with a fork, 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 hours. Let cool slightly and serve.
