    Default What's the name of the small hot peppers in the DR

    You know, the one's that grow everywhere.

    Also, has anyone had any experience in fermenting them to make a hot sauce? I ordered some starter, but it appears the starter only makes the fermentation process start faster.

    THanks in advance.

    Hmmm...I've always known it as "aji picante". This one I mean.




    The Gustoso one (scotch bonnet) is not hot at all from what I remember.

    Hehehe. Those are the ones. Gonna ferment some to make a hot sauce.

    They are not scotch bonnets though, very small and shaped like a small jalapeno with a pointy tip.

    Come on Cobra, man up, they ain't that hot......
    I have never formented these little guys, but I dice them up and fill a litre bottle 3/4 full, put a little garlic and onion in and fill with olive oil and let stand for about a week, periodically shaking the he!! out of the bottle.
    For use just pour on your food. When you run out of oil, just refill it and shake the he!! out of it a couple of times and leave for a couple of days and you got more hot sauce......great tasting and pretty spicy.....better than what you can buy here anyway

    Do you mean the little round ones? Not sure how it's spelled, but sounds like cachucha peppers??
