The Aleppo chili pepper, also called Halaby or Turkish pepper, has a salty flavor with subtle notes of raisin, pomegranate and even sun-dried tomato. Though this pepper originates in the Syrian town of Aleppo, today we source it from a Turkish region just north of Aleppo. Use this chili pepper anywhere you would use the crushed red chili flake; add it to pasta, pizza, chili or anywhere you want to add a flavorful mild heat. These chiles average around 2,500-7,500 Scoville heat units. Ingredients: Chiles, vegetable oil, salt.
Really the best.
I'm so obsessed with this spice, I've gone through multiple jars in less than a year. I sprinkle this on everything, especially cottage cheese and hummus.
I wasn't familiar with Aleppo Peppers, but read a review in Serious Eats and thought I'd give it a try. I bought the flat-pack, and since that first try we've put it on so many other things. I halves little potatoes, added olive oil and a very healthy portion of Aleppo peppers, mixed them and baked them for 20 minutes. Fantastic. We also added it to scrambled eggs, and some pork chops. A new favourite seasoning.
I love cooking especially Middle Eastern lamb dishes. Spice House is the best resource for spices not available in local grocery stores.
I always have this on hand and use it whenever a recipe calls for pepper flakes.its a great addition to most recipes.
