What are hot cherry peppers? About the ingredient hot cherry peppers. Including 2 recipes with hot cherry peppers, photos, and where to find it.


Popular in Italian cooking, hot pickled cherry peppers are many times 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 which 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.

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