Chile, Urfa, Crushed
Also known as Isot pepper, this wonderful crushed chile from the Turkish town of Urfa is similar to Aleppo. Though Urfa chiles are called “red”, they actually are purplish black in color. These premium peppers are picked and cut, dried in the sun by day, then wrapped and sweated at night for more than a week. This sweating process gives the chiles a rich, earthy flavor and smoky aroma.

Urfa peppers are a 3-4 on a heat scale of 1-10. The heat develops slowly and has more bite than Aleppo crushed red peppers. Try sprinkling over salad, pasta, pilaf, pizza and more. If you enjoy Aleppo chiles we think you will love these as well.

“Received my order of Urfa and Aleppo chilies recently and had to let you know that these are the freshest chilies I have purchased since being in Istanbul a few years ago. Believe me when I need replenishment I will go only to Savory Spice Shop. Thanks
