Ohhh "Pikliz"!! This spicy mixture of freshly chopped cabbage, hint of lime, tangy vinegar, thinly sliced onion & sweet peppers and lets not forget the star of the show.....the infamous Scotch Bonnet Pepper is the definition of the "Spice of Life"!
I always keep a jar of freshly made Pikliz in my fridge.... I PUT THAT *HIT ON EVERYTHING!
Making this spicy concoction is fairly easy and once you get the hang of it you wont even need this recipe, you'll be able to eyeball it.
1 Large Bowl
2 cups finely shredded Cabbage
1 cup shredded Carrots (Rinsed)
1 tbsp finely diced red bell peppers (optional)
1 tbsp finely diced green bell peppers (optional)
1 tbsp finely diced onions
The juice of 1 entire fresh lime
1 crushed garlic
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tsp peppercorn
2-3 very finely diced " Scotch Bonnet Peppers" ( you may need to wear gloves when slicing pepper)
2 cups white vinegar(enough to cover the Cabbage mixture when it in the jar)
1/2 maggie boullion cube
Mix everything together in large bowl very well. Transfer to plastic Tupperware bowl/jar with a tight fitting lid and let marinate in refrigerator overnight. Enjoy the next day with fried chicken, fried plantains, stewed fish or as a spicy garnish to any savory dish. Store in refrigerator up to 4 months..
Enjoy! Be sure to share this post. Thanks!
