Hinkelhatz: Pennsylvania's traditional chili with heart

A chili with history and tradition

The Hinkelhatz, also known as Chicken Heart, is a traditional chili variety that is deeply rooted in Pennsylvania culture. Its history dates back to 1880, when it was cultivated by the descendants of Dutch settlers. Their name, which means “chicken heart,” aptly describes the unique shape of these fruits. This variety is characterized by its conical shape and a size of 3-4 cm, which actually resembles a chicken heart. With a spiciness level of 7 on the Scoville scale, the Hinkelhatz offers a pleasant spiciness that delights both connoisseurs and newcomers to the chili world.

Versatile use in the kitchen

The Hinkelhatz is primarily pickled and used to make chili vinegar, a practice that has its roots in Amish tradition. Their intense spiciness, which is comparable to that of cayenne pepper, makes them a versatile companion in the kitchen. It is not only ideal for hot sauces, but also for cooking, stuffing and grilling. The unique shape and spicy taste of the Hinkelhatz give every dish a special touch.
