One very important component of a dish for Caribbeans is the use of Scotch bonnet peppers. I was hunting for it last night to make dinner in four markets and could NOT find it. Had to resort to a sauce but I was legit mad, lol. Spoke to one of the grocer to find out there’s some sort of bad blood with one of the sellers of it so it’s just _not_ available in some parts of Brooklyn.

@jalcine Damn. I hate when spite gets in the way of spice.
@jalcine Hanabero peppers are supposed to be close, but not as sweet. Maybe try swapping a habanero and sugar to taste?
@jalcine Of course, this assumes that habaneros are easier to find. In L.A. they are. IDK about the east coast.
The heat isn’t as smoky :(
I ended up getting the closest thing I could find with the Matouk sauces (https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/cac15699-3297-4cb3-985d-58bc3368bfa0)
