Peppadew Peppers

Theo Mar 9, 2004 10:53 PM

Does anyone know where I can get these red pepper wonders in LA? I recently had them in NYC (in a tangy vinegary brine) and loved them. Where can they be found in Los Angeles?

    Fresh & Easy markets have them.

        Always in the Olive Bar at Gelson's Silver Lake. And usually in Von's Olive Bar.

          I don't know where you live - but the RALPHS in Studio City on Ventura and Vineland just opened a cheese bar and they have FRESH sweet and juicy Peppadews in the Olive Bar. They are so incredible and crunchy - that you will NEVER eat one out of a jar again! Good luck and good eat'n!

            Fought my way off the 405 to the Sherman Oaks Whole Foods and there was a nice vat of them at the cheese/meats/olives counter.

            Thanks to all for their suggestion.

              They have em at my Whole Foods aa well, the one in Sherman Oaks.

              Really tasty peppers. They told me they're from S. Africa.

                yes they are indeed South African - my sister-in-law travels there for business and I guess that is how she discovered them.

                Thanks to all who responded - now I just need to head to Whole Foods (I'm close to both SO and Coldwater Canyon branches) to score a stash

                Try the Whole Foods on Fairfax and Santa Monica in the deli/meat/cheese section. I recall getting them there a few months back.
