A Guyanese recipe I found on a site for Caribbean recipes. If you cannot find a scotch bonnet pepper, you may sub habanero. I haven't tried this yet, and the recipe does not specify servings, so I'm guessing. To give the flavor of the scotch bonnet pepper, but not the heat, simmer it whole as directed in the recipe, but take it out before serving.
