African Pepper

Scotch Bonnet peppers known also as "Bonny Peppers". Found in many Caribbean islands and also West Africa. These peppers are used in many African cuisines, and the primary ingredient in Pepper Soup! Fresh, ripe Scotch bonnets can change from green to yellow to scarlet red; however, other varieties of this pepper can ripen to orange, yellow, peach, or even a chocolate brown. One of my favorite things to make with these peppers is the African Pepper Sauce! If you love extreme heat, it is the perfect addition to almost any meal!
