¼ Cup Blueberry Concentrate

Rinse chicken wings if desired.  Place in refrigerator on backing sheet (with rack) uncovered to allow skin to dry.

Assemble ingredients for rub and grind together in a coffee grinder or with a mortar and pestle.  You don’t want it too fine, but close.  Toss chicken in rub and bake in oven for 40 minutes or until done.  Turn wings halfway through baking to allow even baking.

Glaze directions: while chicken is baking put canola oil in pan on Medium High heat.  Once hot, add other glaze ingredients and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Strain out garlic and mint.
