Aleppo chili pepper comes from southern Turkey, near the Syrian town of Aleppo, which is considered one of the culinary meccas of the Mediterranean. It is the paprika of Turkey. It has a moderate heat level with some fruitiness and mild, cumin-like undertones, with a hint of a vinegar, salty taste. Use it for great chili flavor in any Middle Eastern or Mediterranean dish. Great on pizzas, salads, and pasta.
