What are hot cherry peppers?

Popular in Italian cooking, hot pickled cherry peppers are often found in the International aisle of the supermarket as opposed to the pickle aisle. Some jars feature a mixture of green and red peppers, which are equally as hot.

Don't confuse hot cherry peppers with roasted red peppers.

On the Scoville scale, which measures the level of capsaicin (the component that makes peppers spicy hot), cherry peppers can range from a warm 100 to a mouth-scorching 5000 units, which is about the same as a jalapeno pepper.

Typically, you would remove the seeds and inner membrane, which will significantly reduce the amount of spicyness.
