What's In The Box?

Trinidad Scorpion Pepper Sauce

A blend of Trinidad Scorpion Peppers, pimento peppers and herbs, pickled in vinegar. The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper was voted the world's hottest pepper in 2012, and is currently ranked at number 2. It can be used as a condiment for any dish, much like ketchup…if you can handle the heat! It’s extremely hot so use sparingly for the pepper sauce amateur.

Pepper Jelly

An assortment of West Indian peppers in a thick sweet jelly.  Superb with roasted meats and poultry.  Excellent on crackers, in sandwiches and with cream cheese.

Spicy Whole Channa
