Get some. If you're lucky.
The rarest of peppers.
Outside of how you might like your steak, or a piece of fine art, rarity has become rare these days. But the Malegueta pepper? Now that’s truly rare. A Brazilian delicacy only harvested once a year, the Malegueta was said to have medicinal qualities. And explorers believed that when they would find it in the wild, gold was nearby. As a result, it became a sign of good luck. So lucky you, hot sauce aficionado, for finding this page, home of Legal (pronounced Lay-gal) Hot Sauce, made with the Malegueta pepper – the rare pepper that makes other peppers envious.
