The Trinidad Pimento is also known as the Trinidad Seasoning pepper. It is the most popular cooking pepper on the Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. It turns from light green to dark red or orange red. The elongated peppers can get over 3 inches in length and about 1/2 inch in diameter.
Here is my family recipe for Trinidad green seasoning.
1 bundle of Cilantro
1 stalk celery
6 cloves garlicky
2 green onions
1/2 bunch thyme
5 pimento peppers
1 inch garlic
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 green scotch bonnet pepper
I would have to say that pepper is adored by Trinidadians and is easily the most popular cooking pepper in the country. Unfortunately it is little known outside of the Caribbean or places that have a large West Indian population. The flavor is really impossible to describe. When you cut it it smells like its going to be hot and I suppose it can be said to have the flavor of a hot pepper but without the heat if that makes sense. It is most definitely not a sweet tasting pepper like a bell pepper.
