Back to Mararu, continued

Regional food in this part of the Amazon is never without pepper sauce. There are many different types. The one in the image is pimenta de cheiro, which translates into smell peppers. So called because of the aroma they emit when broken open. They are also very hot, especially if eaten or placed in oils. These are in vinegar, which reduces the flame a bit.
