Urfa Chile

Slightly sour with notes of chocolate, raisin, and red wine. Its mild heat and complex flavor are key to Turkish cooking, and add depth to meats, veggies, and even brownies.

Fun Fact

Close cousin to Syria’s Aleppo chile, urfa biber’s purple-black color and unique flavor come from a process called sweating, where they are wrapped tightly at night to baste in their own oils.
