Aleppo pepper is made from a type of chilli that was originally grown around the city of Aleppo in northern Syria. The seasoning is now used throughout the Middle East. In the past, Aleppo pepper has rarely been obtainable in Europe – FINEST FOOD AGE now brings this magic of the Orient to your table.
Aleppo pepper is made from ripe chillies, the flavour of which ranges from pleasantly sweet to smoky. The seeds are carefully removed and the red chillies are then flaked. The deep red colour of this seasoning adds visual appeal.
This striking red chilli is moderately hot and has a noticeably fruity flavour.
The highly aromatic Aleppo pepper goes exceptionally well with stewed lamb, mincemeat and bean dishes. As a topping for purées and vegetable terrines it adds flavour and visual appeal to the plate.
With its decorative colouring, Aleppo pepper also makes an excellent table spice for adding moderate heat.
To ensure protection from harmful environmental influences, the Aleppo pepper in the FINEST FOOD AGE PEPPER COLLECTION is supplied in high-quality violet glass jars. Keeping this special jar tightly closed will ensure that the timut pepper always has the dry and dark storage conditions that it needs.
