  • Aleppo Pepper - Turkey


Fresh Turkish Aleppo Pepper

2 oz bag - Turkey

The wonderful Aleppo pepper is a dark red, robust pepper grown in the area around Aleppo (Halab in Arabic) in northwestern Syria, just south of the Turkish border. With its high oil content, this dried and ground Aleppo pepper has a deliciously deep, aromatic flavor. With a bit more heat than paprika - but not so much that it masks the flavor - it is truly a versatile ingredient in the kitchen and at the table.

In Syria, fresh Aleppo Pepper is traditionally used for many dishes, especially soups, salads, and fish. It's also delicious in chili, meat loaf (really!), and sauces, or anywhere paprika is called for but a bit of a stronger flavor is desired. Syrian Aleppo pepper is also excellent on grilled meats like chicken breast, steak, and chops, and makes an attractive sprinkle for potato, chicken and tuna salad and deviled eggs too.
