Understanding Types of Peppers - Video


Summary: The pepper is one of those quintessential ingredients for cooking. In order to use them properly when cooking, it helps to have a little understanding of the types of peppers there are.

The following is the transcript of the video:

The usual pepper that you find in your grocery store is called a bell pepper, and they're big and green. The other types of peppers are paprika and cheretine, and these are more of your mild types of peppers. If you're looking for something spicy go with a jalapeno pepper, or the red chili pepper, or the cayenne pepper. Now, if you're looking for something really hot, go with a habanera pepper. But, I have to warn you, it's really, really hot.
