This sultry pepper leaves a subtle smokey flavour with a slight kick. Perfect for stuffing.
The Poblano pepper originates from the state of Puebla, Medico. When dried, it is referred to as the Ancho pepper or Chile Ancho because of its wide shape. It is most popularly used as a stuffing pepper in Chile Rellenos and boy is it delicious roasted!
Hot like Cayenne, this bright chili will add colour and spice to your dish. Great for curry and stir fry.
The Chile de Àrbol is a small and potent Mexican chili pepper that carries its name because of the pepper bush's resemblance to a tiny tree. Also known as bird's beak chile and rat's tail chile, it can be used fresh, dried or crushed, like Cayenne pepper. The red peppers keep their bright red colour when dried, so they make fun party decorations that double as garnishes too!
This dark drying pepper brings hints of licorice and burnt chocolate to your favourite Mexican dishes. Best known for its use in Mexican mole, it also adds flavour to stews and other sauces!
The Mole pepper (or Mexican "mulato" pepper) is a mild to medium heat chili pepper, closely related to the Poblano (ancho). Alongside Poblanos (or Anchos, when dried) and Chilacas (or Pasillas, when dried), this mole pepper is part of the famous “trinity” used in Mexican mole, as well as other Mexican sauces and stews.
Did you know these hot peppers were born in this region? A real Belizean staple. You can't beat this blend that includes the ever so hot Chocolate Habanero in the mix.
FRESH BASIL KIT
This delicious fresh herb mix includes Purple Basil, Genovese Basil and Thai Sweet Basil. You can blend all three with garlic to make a fresh pesto, or experiment with each individually to compare their flavours. Purple Basil is great in stir-fried dishes and as a beautiful garnish to salads. Genovese Basil is the golden standard for Italian food (Bruschetta and Pasta? Yes please!). Thai Sweet Basil brings an amazing aroma to cold-rolls, cold noodle dishes and, of course, Thai curries!
