A customer favorite, this hard to find coarse, dark red pepper has a robust, earthy flavor with medium heat. In the Middle East, Aleppo Pepper is widely used in soups, salads, poultry, fish and other dishes requiring a hint of heat, chili flavor and color.
Aleppo Pepper is primarily grown in the area around Halab in Northwestern Syria just south of the Turkish border - Halab was known as Aleppo during the Middle Ages. The city was home to the Syrian Jewish community and a center for Middle Eastern culture and cooking.
Silver Cloud's Aleppo Pepper is truly a versatile ingredient in the kitchen and at the table. This is my favorite of all the ground peppers. Sprinkle it on grilled chicken, steak, and chops or anywhere you want some heat with great taste and color. Aleppo Pepper is delicious in chili, meat loaf, sauces and salad dressings.
