Yellow Scotch Bonnet

The Yellow Scotch Bonnet (Bahamian, Bahama Mama, Jamaican Hot or Martinique Pepper) is a very hot pepper, closely related to the Habanero and has about the same heat levels. The shape is different and resembles a Scot’s Bonnet, hence the name. The Yellow Scotch Bonnet is very important in the Jamaican cuisine and the Cayman Islands. That’s why Jamaican Jerk and other Caribbean dishes have a unique taste. Jerk is a way of cooking that is originated in Jamaica. Meat is rubbed with a very sharp spice mixture called Jamaican Jerk Spice. Scotch Bonnet is one of the ingredients. It has wonderful aroma and a fruity hot taste.
