This mild and sunny chile from the Aleppo region of Syria has a moderate heat that doesn't overpower its fruity flavor. Some dishes use only this chile as a seasoning, because the complexity can stand alone.
Aleppo pepper is an all around favorite, and we've got the recipes to prove it! For summer, it's a winner in Nigella Watermelon Salad, and Aleppo Pepper Basil Lemonade. For your next Middle Eastern smorgasboard, try Aleppo Pepper Muhamarra or our Paradise Pistachio Relish. Last but not least, we like to add a pinch to Besar Cranberry Chutney at holiday time.
