Product Description

Aleppo pepper is a robust, brick-red pepper, despite its popularity in Turkey, the pepper’s name comes from a Aleppo, an ancient city along the Silk Road in northern Syria, and is grown throughout Syria and Turkey.

It is the preferred pepper of authentic Mediterranean flavor and fragrance. Aleppo pepper is a variety of Capsicum annul. It is often used as a spice or condiment particularly in Middle Eastern and the Mediterranean cuisines. It starts as pods which ripen to a burgundy color and is then semi-dried, de-seeded, then crushed or coarsely ground.

It has a very robust flavor that hits you in the back of your mouth, tickles your throat and dissipates quickly. The Aleppo pepper has a moderate heat level of about 10,000 on the Scoville scale. It has some fruitiness and mild, cumin like undertones. Its flavor is similar to the ancho chile, but oilier and slightly salty, which is often used in the drying process. It is fairly mild with mild heat building slowly, with a fruity raisin-like flavor .Be careful when using Aleppo, because its slowly building spice can sneak up on you!
