Types of peppers we use in our pepper relish
When it comes to ingredients in our spicy pepper relish, only fresh ones are used. Peppers we use:
1. Red and Yellow Bell Peppers: they offer a mild sweetness that adds a subtle undertone to the relish. We use the red and yellow ones for flavor and final color of the product.
2. Jalapeno Peppers: Jalapeno peppers a kick to your relish without overwhelming the taste buds.
3. Serrano Peppers: Serranos add a further level of heat and flavor. They are usually more consistent with their heat level as we all know you can eat a very mild or quite kicky jalapeno!
4. Habanero Peppers: Our top level adds a touch of habanero peppers for yet another level of heat and touch of fruity flavor, adding a fiery after kick to your dishes. It usually hits a bit later in the bite and further back on the palate.
Using these different combinations of peppers, our pepper relishes have perfected a balance and layers of heat and flavor for your palate.
