Pikliz (Haitian Condiment) (5 oz)
"Pikliz" or "Piquant," is a traditional Haitian condiment that adds a fiery and tangy kick to various dishes. It is made from shredded or finely chopped spicy cabbage that is pickled in vinegar and seasoned with a blend of ingredients, with scotch bonnet peppers being a key component to provide the heat. The result is a flavorful and spicy relish that enhances the taste of many Haitian dishes.
Here's a breakdown of the key elements that go into making Pkiliz:
Cabbage: Cabbage is the primary ingredient in Pkiliz. It is usually shredded or thinly sliced to create a texture that can absorb the pickling liquid and flavors.
Vinegar: Vinegar is used as the pickling liquid. It not only helps preserve the cabbage but also imparts a tangy flavor to the condiment.
Scotch Bonnet Peppers: The intense heat and distinct fruity flavor of scotch bonnet peppers are what give Pikliz its signature spiciness. These peppers are usually finely chopped or minced before being added to the mix.
This was heaven in a bottle! It was tart& the perfect addition to my meal. The heat wasn't without flavor so it was perfect. This was also a great way to teach my son about other cultures. Teaching through food sticks better for teens🤣
