If there is one thing that makes Calabrian food Calabrian, it is spicy red peppers, and these are hot! While many varieties of hot pepper are grown in the region, most are referred to as Calabrian peperoncino, and used in regional dishes. Like all capsicum plants, Calabrian peppers require hot weather to flourish and develop the oils that give them their spiciness.
These wonderful whole cherry chillies are marinated in oil to preserve their freshness and can be used in many starters and main courses, on a pizza or in sauces.
