Aleppo Pepper (Pul Biber) Flakes

Aleppo pepper or pul biber is a coarsely ground Turkish and Syrian paprika, used in cooking or as a condiment at the table in Turkish homes and restaurants - and most famously sprinkled over doner kebabs. Aleppo pepper is named after Aleppo, the largest city in Syria, and notably the end of the Silk Road spice route. The dried chilli peppers create a spice with a lovely balance - intensely coloured, fruity, aromatic, but not particularly hot.

Our favourite use for aleppo pepper or pul biber, is to toss the aleppo pepper with finely diced preserved lemons, and a little oil, and then to spread over a chicken before roasting.
