Tag: red onion
Red onions, sometimes called purple onions, are cultivars of the onion with purplish red skin and white flesh tinged with red.
These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavor. They are often consumed raw, grilled or lightly cooked with other foods, or added as color to salads. They tend to lose their redness when cooked.
Holy wow. The smaller, spicier, and more pungent version of the Aji Amarillo. It’s like being punched in the face, but you like it more than usual!
Strong, floral and clean baccatum taste and apparently the hottest in the entire species. Smaller pods, around 2-3 inches. Much tastier when cooked, the fruit flavor really shines like a new car. It’s one of the fastest peppers there is–can reach up to 30mph on land. Continue reading Aji Cito Pepper
Really strange, pungent capsicum baccatum pepper. A fairly well known underground cultivar. Can taste almost soapy at times like cilantro, in an interesting floral way.
Very strong burst of citrusy baccatum flavor on first bite, similar to the Aji Cito and even the Lemon Drop. And it’s no slouch in the department of heat, got a nice kick to it! It does taste a little bit like pineapple. Really delicious baked with coconut oil and a great alternative to Cayenne type dishes.
Originated in Brazil. Fruity and extremely juicy. This pepper tastes very tropical, like a Habanero that was beat up by a can of Crystal Pepsi. An interesting and sexy spin on the chinense flavor–strong and clean.
In terms of heat, not as hot as the Habanero or more closely related Cheiro Roxa. Great for fresh snacking while contemplating the spookiness of quantum entanglement.
Ripens from reddish purple to a pretty peach pink color. A very futuristic little pepper, for sure.
What does an Aji Amarillo taste like? Ted Danson would simply call it, “Heaven.” It has a fruity flavor that is complex and well rounded especially when cooked–almost like a spicy mango, apricot or carrot. People have compared it to tasting like sunshine!1
Amarillo means yellow in Spanish, however, this fruit ripens to dark orange. Even unripe, the green Aji Amarillo has a splendid taste with great heat!
