About Chilli 'Jalapeño'
Jalapeño chillies, belonging to the capsicum family, exhibit a range of heat from moderate to very hot. Originally from South America, these chillies measure approximately 4cm in length and are initially dark green, turning scarlet when fully ripe. They are commonly sold in both fresh and tinned forms. When dried and smoked, they transform into chipotle, offering a deep and sweet flavour with hints of chocolate. Pickled chipotles are also available for those seeking a different culinary experience.
In The Records
Chilli peppers are thought to have originated in Central or South America and were initially grown in Mexico. Following the Columbian Exchange, numerous varieties of chilli pepper were disseminated throughout the world, employed for both culinary and medicinal purposes.
