    Recipe Introduction

    Pikliz, or pickled scotch bonnet peppers, is used to give flavor to many
    dishes. It is also placed on the table at mealtime so that you can sprinkle
    as much as you want over your food. Every Haitian kitchen has pikliz in the
    cupboard or refrigerator. In many of the recipes only the vinegar of this
    pikliz is used, whereas in others the carrots, cabbage and onions are used
    (simply referred to as pikliz in ingredient list).
