Silk Chili Flakes

Silk Chili Flakes

from 7.00

These summery, sweet and warmly spicy silk chili flakes come from Kahramanmaras, Turkey, where the traditional drying and grinding process results in a chili flake with a very smooth, slippery texture. Historically, the were ground using heavy silk ropes, and although more modern grinding machines are used today, the tradition is commemorated in the name silk chili.

The silk chili is botanically identical to the Aleppo chili, which has been cultivated in Syria for milennia. Due to the ongoing violence of the Syrian civil war, Aleppo chilis are unfortunately no longer available for import.

Our silk chili flakes are packed with a little bit of salt and sunflower seed oil to keep them fresh and flavorful.
