Lindsay, a leading specialty condiment brand and largest table olive producer, today announced the launch of its new line of specialty peppers. The Lindsay pepper line includes the following varietals: Sweet Banana Peppers, Whole and Sliced Golden Greek Pepperoncinis, Hot Chili Peppers, Jalapeño Peppers, Roasted Red Peppers and Mix Giardiniera.
Each jar of peppers is 12 fluid ounces and prices vary by retailer. The new product line is currently available in select retailers throughout Northern California and will eventually make their way to shelves across the country.
“We are proud to introduce the line of specialty peppers to our consumers,” says Andal Allison, marketing manager for Lindsay and Bell-Carter Foods, Inc. “Each varietal tastes great and adding peppers is an easy way to add fun and flavor to your favorite dish.”
Flavor profiles are included below:
Golden Greek Pepperoncini
Pepperoncini (pronounced pep-per-awn-CHEE-nee) are Lindsay’s top seller, and for good reason! Grown on sun-drenched Mediterranean farms, their golden color and mildly piquant, fruity flavor echo the spirit their native land, making them a classic sandwich companion and a must-have on antipasto platters and salad bars. Available as whole peppers or sliced, these crisp golden peppers, with just a hint of heat, are grown in Greece. Ours are made exclusively from the Greek variety, which are sweeter than those from Italy.
Hot Chili Peppers
The spicy Cascabel peppers that make up Lindsay Hot Chili Peppers are grown in Central California Harvested at their peak, the chilies are delivered to our facility and packed within twenty-four hours, ensuring that we retain their natural heat and fresh-picked flavor. These spicy, perfectly bite-sized little firecrackers are not for the timid.
Jalapeños are moderately hot chili peppers that are two to three inches long and usually dark green when harvested. Red jalapeños are simply green jalapeños that have been left on the plant to continue to ripen, and are generally hotter and sweeter than their green counterparts.
A combination of carrots, cauliflower, Sicilian olives, red peppers and celery, mixed giardiniera (pronounced jar-din-air-a) is a perfect addition to sandwiches, salads and pasta. The product can also be served as a compliment to various appetizers.
Roasted Red Peppers
With their sweet, earthy flavor and vibrant colors, roasted peppers add a beautiful and sophisticated flair to pasta dishes, pizzas, omelets, salads, sauces and appetizers. Red peppers are simply green peppers that have been left on the vine to continue to ripen in the Mediterranean sun. Packed in water with sea salt for preserving, they have tender juicy flesh, mild character and a light smoky and sweet flavor.
Sweet Banana Peppers
Long and bright yellow with shiny skin, it’s not hard to figure out where their name comes from. While sweet peppers are abundant from July through September, Lindsay makes it possible to enjoy them year round. Our banana wax peppers are naturally the perfect shape for snacking and pack an addictive crunch.
