About the Products
Black Urfa Chili: Found on almost every table in southeastern Turkey, this spice is delicious on anything needing a little extra depth and a hint of heat. After being cured, the black Urfa chili is packed with salt and a little sunflower seed oil to preserve its natural texture and flavor and prevent it from drying out.
Smoked Pimenton Paprika: Sweet, locally grown red pimentón peppers are slowly dried over oak coals, which imbue them with a rich, smoky flavor that imparts a savory depth and gorgeous color to any dish. This version comes from a single family-owned fabrica in the Extremadura region of western Spain famous for imento de la vera, which has a Designation of Protected Origin status from the European Union.
Silk Chili: These summery and spicy Silk Chili Flakes 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 centuries. Due to the ongoing violence of the Syrian civil war, true Aleppo chili is unfortunately no longer available for import. These zesty flakes have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat, similar to Espelette and Korean chilis.
New Harvest Turmeric: Grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It has a sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower-quality turmeric, and is perfect for both sweet and savory applications, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes. It has a high curcumin content (4%) makes it ideal for both culinary and nutritional uses and has been lab tested to ensure that it is 100% lead-free
