Aleppo Peppers originate from the Syrian town of the same name, which is considered one of the culinary meccas of the Mediterranean. It has a moderate heat level with some fruitiness and mild, cumin-like undertones, with a hint of a vinegar, salty taste. Use it for authentic chilli flavour in any Middle Eastern or Mediterranean dish.
Aleppo chilli offers a nice variation from your usual crushed red peppers. It has a very robust flavour that hits you in the back of your mouth, tickles your throat and dissipates quickly. Try this staff favourite in place of regular crushed red chilli’s on pizzas, salads, and pasta.
