"PICKEPEPPA SAUCE
Since 1921, Shooters Hill Jamaica"
-From the bottle

The refrigerator light goes on...

I have loved Pickapeppa sauce since I was a kid and my parents used to serve it over cream cheese at cocktail parties. I haven’t used it much for cooking but the suggestion of a sauce inspired this black bean sauce.

Pickapeppa Sauce

This is the blurb from the Pickapeppa website at www.pickapeppa.com:

“Pickapeppa Sauce was created in Shooter’s Hill, Jamaica in 1921 and is still made there today. Prepared with cane vinegar and aged in oak barrels, Pickapeppa Sauce has a sweet but mellow flavor that gives it an unmatched versatility. It has, in fact, been called “Jamaican Ketchup” in tribute to its range of uses. Pickapeppa is undoubtedly a unique and delicious Jamaican sauce.” 

This sauce is fabulous.  My parents used to serve it over cream cheese at cocktail parties and such.  There is so much that you can use it for.  I have spread it lightly on chicken or fish as it is roasting and a little goes a long way in a salad dressing. 

If you can’t find it in your grocery, it can be ordered online at the Pickapeppa website.
