Pikliz is a hot pepper mixture that is pickled with vinegar and widely used in Haitian cuisine. It is used as a dipping sauce, added to dishes such as sauces, both authentic and regular Haitian dishes. Other Caribbean islands also have their variety of hot peppers pickled.
The main ingredients are hot peppers, cabbage, carrot, and vinegar. Other ingredients are also added for more flavoring. These ingredients are green peas, onions, and spices such as salt, pepper and sometimes garlic. Many Haitians use Pikliz in place of regular hot sauce and food preparation as well. The main pepper to make Haitian Pikliz is Scotch Bonnet, but if it is not available, habanero is a great substitute as well.
Scotch Bonnet peppers are native to the Caribbean islands and depending on your locality; they may not be as available as Habanero peppers. Depending on the season, you may have some nice red or orange color hot peppers.
Any hot pepper must be handled with caution. It is better to use disposable gloves when handling hot peppers.
