Aleppo chili pepper comes to us from the Syrian town of Aleppo near the southern Turkish border, which is often considered one of the culinary meccas of the Mediterranean. Aleppo pepper has a moderate heat level with a mild, cumin-like undertone, a bit of fruitiness, and a hint of a salt and vinegar.

Aleppo chili offers a pleasant variation from your usual crushed red peppers. It has a very robust flavor that hits you in the back of your mouth, tickles your throat and dissipates quickly. As a staff favorite at the Spice House, we recommend trying Aleppo pepper in place of regular crushed red chilies on pizzas, pasta and salads.
