When black pepper isn’t enough and red pepper just won’t cut it, reach for this Crushed Aleppo Pepper to heat things up. It won’t have you gasping for water, though – it’s just enough heat to wake up your dishes without pushing you over the edge. As with any spice, this one comes with its own inherent subtleties. (In other words, it’s not just pure heat.) This tastes like a cross between cumin and cayenne pepper, with warm, fruity notes.
Also known as Halaby, the Aleppo chili pepper is typically used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines, only gaining popularity in the US in the early 90s. It’s named after Aleppo, the city in northern Syria situated on the Silk Road.
Each spice from Whole Spice is certified Kosher by Rabbi Ben-Tzion Welton of Va’ad Hakashrus of northern California.
Crushed Aleppo Chili should be treated just like the rest of your spices – keep it in your cupboard away from light and heat and use within one year.
Aleppo chili is grown in Syria and Turkey, then sun dried, seeded, and crushed to order in California, ensuring optimum potency.
