Hungarian Hot Pepper

by | Aug 30, 2022 | CSA Member Updates, What's in your share box

Hungarian hot peppers are used fresh in salsas, dips, salads, pickled by themselves or in relishes, and as an ingredient in stews, soups and marinades. They can also be grilled. This European pepper is 5 1/2 to 6 inches long and is a tapered cylinder that is yellow to start, changing from orange to red as it matures but most often used at the yellow stage. This pepper is difficult to differentiate from the sweet banana pepper except by tasting it. Don’t overlook the spiciness. We can’t stress this enough. Your eyes may see “mild banana pepper” when it sees a Hungarian wax, but these chilies hit harder than a jalapeño on average.
