If you aren’t familiar with Aleppo peppers – the Aleppo chili pepper comes to us from southern Turkey, near the Syrian town of Aleppo, which is considered one of the culinary meccas of the Mediterranean. It has a moderate heat level with some fruitiness and mild, cumin-like undertones, with a hint of a vinegar, salty taste. If you can’t find this spice at your local market, you can order it online at Penzey’s Spices.
