urfa chilli pepper flakes
Small dark flakes of the famous Urfa or Isot chilli pepper from Turkey with a fantastic sweet, slightly smoky flavour with elements of dried fruit and even tobacco. Urfa flakes are made by salting and drying the whole chillies in a process where the drying chillies are covered to make them 'sweat' which ends up giving the deep dark flavour. The chillies are then crushed and rubbed with a little bit of oil to give a wonderful deep colour and delicious flavour.
uses: Use wherever you want a little heat in your food, pretty much any application! Sprinkle over your food in place of pepper or cook with them for more heat as the flavour infuses over time
