What Does The Caribbean Seasoning Peppers Taste Like?
It has the flavour of extremely hot peppers but almost no heat!
Great for making a mild sauce or salsa or used to be a tastier substitute for where you might apply bell peppers. Chop it up and add to your omelet, salads, beans or stews !
You will not be disappointed with their flavour as it is a sweet, almost smoky pepper that tastes of fruity tropical.
And don’t get us started on their aroma because it is one of the best amazing smells we have smelled in our lives when cooking them!
It turns from light green to dark red or orange red. The elongated peppers can get over 3 inches in length and about 1/2 inch in diameter.
This made my pork stew smell just like how grandma kitchens smell back home in Trinidad
