Peppers are all about their level of heat. Some peppers, like bell peppers, have a crisp, sweet taste, while others, like the jalapeño, create a mouth-tingling, fiery sensation in the mouth. Then there is pepperoncini, a type of chili pepper that is a blend of hot and sweet. This pepper is a signature food in the Mediterranean diet, popular in Greece and Italy, where it is known as both “peperone” and “friggitello.” This pepper gives arrabbiata sauce its heat, adorns antipasto platters, and adds a sweet crunch as a pickled condiment on sandwiches.
