Sweet Cherry Peppers
The cherry pepper is a small, sweet,
and mild to medium pepper that derives its name from its shape and appearance. When fully ripe, cherry peppers are a luscious bright red, delightfully round and about the size of a cherry tomato. Most cherry peppers are no more than an inch to two inches (2.54-5.08 cm) in diameter. The flesh of the pimento is sweet, succulent and more aromatic than that of the red bell pepper.You may find the cherry pepper labeled as the Hungarian cherry pepper, since they are popular in Hungarian dishes
Cherry peppers are an ideal size for pickling or brining, and they also
make for an excellent garnish on a dish. They shouldn’t be thought
of as merely good for pickling or for decoration, since they are quite
tasty. There are also green cherry peppers, which means they have been picked before they were fully ripened.
Chopped cherry pepper
They can also be diced or chopped into small cubes, as part of a fresh salsa. The chopped cherry pepper form an interesting contrast to tomatillos, which are about the same size and are used in most salsa recipes.
Sliced cherry pepper
While pickling is certainly a viable way to treat cherry peppers, consider slicing them in halves for green or pasta salads. You can use either pickled or fresh peppers for this purpose. They’re also excellent added to three bean salads, on top of pizza, or in sweet
and sour dishes
