Born in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, the Habanero pepper is commonly known as one of the hottest chili peppers available. A popular ingredient in a vast majority of Mexican and Tex-Mex cooking, this small pepper packs a huge punch. Essential Cane Habanero sugar, made with real Habanero peppers and responsibly harvested organic cane sugar, lives up to its namesake. A little of this sugar will add a lot of spice. Perfect for sprinkling over raspberry sorbet on a hot summer day for a refreshing kick, or sprinkled over the top of hot cocoa to warm up a cool evening.
