Pickapeppa Sauce is a brand name Jamaican condiment, the main product of the Pickapeppa Company, founded in 1921. It is made in Shooters Hill, Jamaica, near Mandeville.[1] The ingredients (in order on the product label) are: cane vinegar, sugar, tomatoes, onions, raisins, sea salt, ginger, peppers, garlic, cloves, black pepper, thyme, mangoes, and orange peel, aged in oak barrels.[2] The sauce is sweet, sour and mildly spicy. The company makes several variants of the sauce, including mango and extra hot Scotch Bonnet pepper varieties.[3]

One traditional use of the sauce is to pour it over a block of cream cheese, to be spread on crackers.[4]

A noted fan of Pickapeppa sauce is supermodel Naomi Campbell, who carries a bottle with her. [5]
