Aleppo pepper is named after the city of Aleppo in Northern Syria. Used commonly in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. It is also known as halaby biber or pul biber. Aleppo pepper is moderately hot and has a rich flavor that’s similar to that of Ancho chiles but with a little more heat and fruity, aromatic, cumin like undertones.
Use instead of regular crushed red chili’s on pizzas, sprinkled over doner kebabs, salads, pasta, potatoes, hummus, stews, curries or add to scrambled eggs and omelettes or anywhere you want to add a flavorful moderate heat.
