This chile pepper comes from Turkey where it is used much in the same way as Aleppo pepper. It often sits at the table to be used as a condiment but is also used as a base flavor in many dishes. The flavor is often described as having notes of chocolate, raisin, and tobacco. Expect a slight smokiness and medium heat.

This urfa biber pepper works excellently in pilaf and egg dishes. Today, many American chefs are beginning to utilize it in sausage making as well as incorporating it into chocolate and caramel based desserts.
