Fresh Brazilian Malagueta Peppers? -- Yipes! By tomorrow afternoon!

rssfromsf | May 21, 200410:20 AM

Has anyone seen fresh Brazilian Malagueta Peppers, especially in San Francisco?

I'm making a fresh Molho Apimentado (Malagueta Hot Sauce) and I need peppers by tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon!

I figure I'll call Mercado Do Brasil (on Valencia) later this morning to see if they have a source.

Thanks much!

P.S. I already have a fallback just in case... The malagueta is about a 9 on the heat scale. If needed, I may substitute 2 green thai chiles (heat 7-8) and 1 habanero (heat 10) to every 3 malaguetas.
