The habanero chilli pepper from Mexico is the oldest plant grown in America. For 9,000 years, it has grown in this land of gastronomic delights along with vanilla and chocolate. Christopher Colombus was the first to bring this spice back to Isabella the Catholic, but it was Magellan, on his heroic trip around the world, who took this chilli pepper to the four corners of the planet. In 2010, UNESCO designated traditional Mexican Cuisine as a Cultural Treasure.

Chilli peppers are an essential ingredient of Mexican, African and Asian cuisines. The Emperor Montezuma reportedly drank an energizing elixir made from cocoa, vanilla, spices and chilli pepper. 

The Habanero chilli pepper is powerful and scorching hot but has a surprising perfume of dried apricot. It will set your tastebuds alight and awaken all your senses! You can use it in chilli sauces, tomato sauces, stocks, and mayonnaises. Use sparingly - a little goes a long way!
