Urfa Biber Chilli Flakes
Urfa Biber (also known as isot pepper) is a dried Turkish chilli pepper of the type cultivated in the Urfa region of Turkey. It is often described as having a smoky, 'raisin-like' taste. Urfa biber is technically a red pepper, ripening to a dark maroon on the plant. The peppers go through a two-part process, where they are sun-dried during the day and wrapped tightly at night. The night process is called 'sweating', and works to infuse the dried flesh with the remaining moisture of the pepper. The result is an appearance ranging from deep purple to a dark, purplish black.
Its great sprinkled on soup, on salads, on fried or scrambled eggs on about anything you can think of.
