A peppadew is a sweet little pepper, about the size of a cherry tomato, with a spicy attitude. They are commercially grown, processed and packaged in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

They can be found in the grocery store, usually near the deli section in the olive bar.

If you are looking for a very quick and easy small bite to serve your guests, this is it. Remove the peppers from their container, stuff with goat cheese, arrange on a plate and drizzle with a bit of balsamic cream … done!
