Pickapeppa Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Pickapeppa Hot Sauce

Probably my favorite imported hot sauce. Made in Jamaica, it contains cane vinegar, which gives it a sweetness along with some pretty searing heat.

From the label:

The Pickapeppa Company Ltd was established in 1921. Over the years it has won a number of awards both nationally and internationally to attest to its high quality and consistency of flavor. Pickapeppa products are aged in oak barrels for a minimum of one year. They contain only the finest tropical fruit and spices from all over the world.

Ingredents: hot peppers, cane vinegar, sugar, salt, and spices

The Pickapeppa Co. Ltd, Shooters Hill, Jamaica

If you can’t cook, buy a fire sauce, otherwise use this sauce for a mellow flavoring that is sure to please even the most discriminate palat
