Sweet Piquante Pepper/Peppadew Baskets

“These are little hot bites! These are awesome! My friend had these at a celebration for 30 guests and they kept making them all nice and fresh!! The looked so great and taste even better! Got the recipe and then tried to find out more about them! Peppadew is the brand name of sweet piquanté peppers grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa. This type of piquante peppers was discovered and isolated in the 1990s. The name is derived from "Pepper" and "dew". Although the pepper is sometimes described as a cross between a pepper and a tomato, this description is not botanically accurate, and refers only to the resemblance in color and size between Peppadew and cherry tomatoes.”
