    peppadew fan - too sweet.

    Ditto. I was enjoying a really piquant salad that contained
    peppadews. The sweetness was masked, so I went in search of those
    divine peppadews. No such thing I guess. Very disappointing.
    (Heck, I even saw some on a salad bar, and sugar wasn't listed. I
    got one, tried it, and yuck.) Oh wait! My daughter's friend
    brought some peppadews to her. She claimed they weren't sweet,
    but, yes, they were. I dumped some vinegar in with them and they
    have been macerating for a long time now. Maybe I will remember
    to check them out.

    I don't even know what a real peppadew even tastes like because
    they've all been unnaturally sweetened.

    I think Pavane is referring to the Soth American olives stuffed with
    aji amarillo peppers. The olives are really mild and buttery, and the
    heat in aji is mild and tasty. I just ate the last of a pound of them
    yesterday.

    OTOH, there are peppadew-stuffed olives and maybe the sweet goes good
    with the tartness of the olive. I'd try those (or rather - sneak a
    few from the olive bar at the grocery store).

    Ah, thanks for the clue about the olives. I THINK the sweetness
    of the peppadews was just totally masked by the lemon that was
    also in the pasta salad that I adored. I sure can't find any
    piquant peppadews. It's a pity, because I really thought they
    were great until I had them unadorned.
