Pickapeppa Sauce (Calgary)

Rakoth Feb 2, 2010 06:29 AM


I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find some of this stuff? My manager told me about it, and I am very curious. Has anyone found this sauce in Calgary? Once I get it does anyone have any ideas on what I could use it with?

I am always curious for new things.

      Yep. I bought a bottle at the Marlborough Wal-Mart about 2 weeks ago. Love the ethnic foods section at Wal-Mart. They have some great hard to find items!

      OK - maybe I'm showin my roots here. Although I'm not really sure what the sauce was created for (maybe like a steak sauce, but I don't put sauce on steak, similar to A1.)... in the Deep South (Mississippi to be exact), we put it over a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers for an appetizer. In fact, I think anything pourable is served over cream cheese in the South.

      Doesn't really help you in recipe creation, but that's the only thing I've ever seen it used for. It'd be good as a marinade or in chili or something I'm sure. It's good in bloody marys. I've always bought it at the grocery in the section with other hot sauces - although it's not REALLY hot, it does have some kick.

        yea, it's pretty much just like an A1 or HP sauce, but from jamaica. i'm not sure how it's used in jamaica, or in the southern usa, but as a northern dude i've used it as a bbq sauce on chicken (basting during grilling).

              I saw three different kinds of the Pickapeppa sauce at Joycee's Caribbean Foods (630 1 Avenue NE) today.
