    Chilli Urfa Biber

    Product description

    Urfa Peppers is a Turkish chilli which comes from the town of Urfa in the south of Turkey. It is a big part of Turkish cuisine as they ten  to use more chillies than pepper than the western world counterparts.

    The preparation of Urfa peppers is what sets this chilli apart from any others in our range.When the red peppers are harvested, they are dried in direct sunlight which turns the chillies  lovely deep burgundy color. Instead of letting them dry out completely the farmers cover the chillies at night with fabric to make them “sweat” which preserves some of the natural oils in the skin. This process is  a type of  fermentation similar to the the production of  black tea. As a result, when the chillies are ground  they retain a moist almost damp texture. The oil ensures the chillies dot get mouldy, but once open, it is a good idea to keep in the fridge.
