Hungarian Peppers

Hughlipton Mar 22, 2013 06:40 PM

I have a recipe for czech meatloaf I want to find a purveyor who carries hungarian peppers to chop in to the meatloaf figuring that is the closest I will find to Czech peppers which I don't even know if there is such a thing. Any store, market, or online place would be greatly appreciated.

    My husband's parents are Hungarian and Czech. That means when he's having a bad week, all he wants is Hungarian comfort food.

    My mother in law SWEARS by Jon's Market. Here are the locations:

    They stock a wide variety of Eastern European foods, including the peppers you are looking for. They will likely be labeled "yellow peppers" and they look like this: http://foodandwinehedonist.files.word...
    They're about twice the size of a medium jalapeno.

    Can you post the recipe? My husband LOVES meatloaf, and a Czech meatloaf would send him over the moon.

    Have fun!

        Also, they seem to be in every Latino-esque supermarket (and is there a generic adjective for these places that doesn't sound so awkward?) ... so perhaps check out your local Cardenas, King Ranch, El Super, etc.?

          I just saw them today at Big Saver Foods on Garvey Avenue in Rosemead, $1.99/lb.

          I would check your local farmers market, esp. if they have vendors that sell lots of peppers, onions, leeks, etc.
