Silk Chili

Regular price $8.99 Sale

These summery, sweet and spicy silk chili come from Kahramanmaras, Turkey. Also known as marash pepper, the silk chili is botanically identical to the Aleppo pepper, which has been cultivated in Syria for millennia. Due to the ongoing violence of the Syrian civil war, true Aleppo chili is unfortunately no longer available for import.

Our silk chili is naturally preserved with a little bit of salt and sunflower seed oil to keep them fresh and flavorful.

They have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat. Use in any dish in need of a little excitement, from scrambled eggs to burgers to brownies. Perfect for cooking of finishing.

  • Origin: Kahramanmaras, Turkey
  • Process: Sun-dried, then ground
  • Ingredients: Silk Chili (Capsicum annuum), sunflower seed oil, salt
  • Tasting notes: Roasted Tomato • Honey • Mediterranean Sun

COOKING

SOURCING

These chilis undergo a traditional drying and grinding process that results in a chili flake with a very smooth, slippery texture. Historically, the chilis were ground using heavy silk ropes, and although more modern grinding machines are used today, the tradition is commemorated in the name silk chili.
