Cuisine from the Caribbean is unique to the world due to its many cultural influences, and that of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago even more so because of its distinct Indian influence. This influence makes the most of the Scotch Bonnet peppers that grow best in the rich soil of the islands. They serve as the base of many family recipes for “peppa sauce” there.
Trini Pepper Sauce ($12) prides itself on being 100% authentic and true to the recipe of its founder Mustafa Mannan’s grandmother. All the Scotch Bonnet peppers used are handpicked on the islands and shipped quickly to Raleigh, North Carolina to be blended with Trinidad cilantro, papaya, mustard, vinegar, and garlic, with just a finishing touch of Scorpion peppers to create this exclusive taste.
At 100,000 to 350,000 on the Scoville scale (jalapeños are only 2,000 to 8,000) Trini Pepper Sauce has the heat and flavor to spice up just about any dish you want to enhance. For extra variety, this astounding hot sauce comes in two heat levels, Original (hot) and Hot (even hotter.) You have been warned – enjoy! Details in the video.
