Guaranteed to wow you. If not, we'll refund or replace it!

Jimmy Nardello Peppers are the sweet, thin-skinned Italian frying peppers that begin popping up at farmers markets towards the end of summer. They have shiny, firetruck-red skin and a super-sweet flavor and creamy texture, and they are coveted by chefs and home cooks alike.

If you're like us, you're buying these candy-apple-colored peppers by the bagful during their relatively short season. Usually, we eat our fill of fresh Jimmy Nardellos and then tearfully say goodbye as we wait for their arrival the following summer. Not anymore!

Did we mention that they are sweet? If you are sensitive to heat but love that pepper flavor, this is the pepper flake for you! 

  • Origin: Norwich Meadows Farm, NY, USA
  • Process: Hot air dried, then ground
  • Ingredients: Jimmy Nardello pepper (Capsicum annuum)
  • Tasting notes: Cherry Sun-Dried Tomato Summer Bounty

COOKING

SOURCING

Jimmy Nardellos were originally brought to the U.S. from southern Italy in 1887 by Giuseppe and Angella Nardiello, who grew the pepper in their family garden. The pepper's namesake, Jimmy, was the couple's fourth son (of 11 kids!). He was an avid gardener and devoted his life to continuing to cultivate his parents' heirloom seeds.

Shortly before his death, Jimmy donated seeds to the Seed Saver Exchange, where the pepper was introduced to a wider audience. Soon after, the Jimmy Nardello Pepper was added to the Slow Food Ark of Taste.

Meet the Farmer: Norwich Meadows Farm owners Zaid and Haifa Kurdieh were among the first farmers in New York to start growing these incredible peppers. Zaid and Haifa have built their reputation among chefs by selecting crops for flavor and texture instead of yield.

Norwich Meadows Farm is a certified organic farm in Chenango County, NY, grounded in nourishment for our bodies and our environment. They are committed not only to growing exceptional food, but also to preserving and stewarding the agricultural land that they farm, through soil management and biodiversity (they grow over 1,300 varieties of plants on the 250-acre farm).

The Kurdiehs' commitment to biodiversity has also made Norwich Meadows Farm a favorite among many of New York's most popular chefs. Priya Krishna wrote a great piece for the New York Times describing Zaid's farm, his love of flavor and his unconventional farming techniques.

Tons of flavor without the heat!

My family loves the Jimmy Nardello Pepper Flakes! They’re bursting with flavor, but have very little “heat” so my kids will eat them, too. I would love to be able to order this in a larger amount… the 0.9 oz glass jar doesn’t last us very long!

zero heat

Love these pepper flakes. They have the chili flavor I love but zero heat, so you can really customize the heat level in what you're cooking with another chili. Or go no heat entirely. Delish.

Jimmy Nardello Pepper flakes

Makes me dream of a summer pepper! Love the sweet complexity these add. As described, these peppers do not add heat, but B&B has excellent choices for that too.

Good Team Player

I think the Jimmy Nardello Pepper flakes are very balanced with flavor and heat. I had read some early reactions to the Jimmy Nardello Pepper flakes - commenting that they were somewhat bland. I used to participate in Chili cook-offs and there were always the "super hot" contestants. But frankly, if it's too hot, I can't taste anything BUT that heat. I've found the Jimmy Nardello Pepper flakes can elevate a dish- not dominate the dish. I enjoy spices and herbs more if they are team players rather than stealing the show. They are perfect added to just about any dish. I like them very much.

These make a great garnish!

This is a great option for those who are sensitive to spice/heat but want a pepper flake option to use in dishes. They are not spicy at all and are large flakes. I'm finding that I mostly use them as a garnish (instead of cooking them in to dishes) - the slightly crispy/crunchy texture is great on salads and other vegetable dishes.

Jimmy Nardello Pepper Flakes

These have become one of my favorite spices of the many I have ordered from Burlap & Barrel. The complexity of the flavor is delightful. You get all the deliciousness of a bell pepper along with a hint of the spicy peppers. The beautiful balance allows you to use these peppers in any dish.
