Pick a Peppadew

Peppadew ChiliesI‘m addicted to chili, earthy, sweet, smoked, and burning hot. I love them all.

A reader on my Facebook fan page recently asked me what a peppadew is.

If you haven’t tasted this sweet little hottie — you are in for a treat!

Not to be confused with a cherry pepper that you find in most Italian or Spanish grocery stores, the peppadew is a native to South Africa and has a very unique flavor when pickled — a taste that brings sweet and sour sauces and even barbeque to mind.

5 Great Ways to Pick Peppadews for Your Meals

  • Thinly sliced, you can add them to a cold spring or summer salad from macaroni to potato — peppadews will add a little heat, but a lot of flavor.
  • Substitute peppadews for any recipe that calls for pickled cherry peppers.
  • Sprinkle sliced peppadews on your fresh delivery pizza
  • Thinly slice and toss with sauteed broccoli or spinach
  • Finely chop and add to meatball or meatloaf mixtures for extra zing
