Melissa’s turns up the heat with California Scotch Bonnet Peppers. This chile is very similar in flavor, texture, size and heat as its’ cousin the Habanero.

Scotch Bonnet provides a bit fruitier flavor, although it is still very hot. When fully ripe, these peppers range in color from pale yellow-green to red and yellow. They measure about 1 to 1.5 inches in size, slightly smaller then Habanero Chiles.

Melissa’s Scotch Bonnet Peppers have an intense heat and a wonderfully distinctive flavor that mixes well with tomatoes and also many fruits. They are wonderful in salsas or in meat marinades and they are the kick found in jerk sauce.

When selecting fresh Scotch Bonnet Chile Peppers, look for those that are mature, firm, dry and heavy for size. Skins should be shiny, smooth and unblemished. Peppers should have a fresh scent. Caution must be used when handling this pepper.

Wash peppers thoroughly and dry. Wrap in paper towel and store refrigerated up to two weeks.
