Softer and more vibrant than the stale chili flakes on grocery store shelves, these fruity chilies are sun-dried then stone-ground into flakes with a touch of sunflower oil and salt to preserve their soft texture. They have a bright medium heat and rich flavor reminiscent of sun-dried tomato. These chili flakes are botanically identical to the Aleppo pepper, which is hard to source due to the ongoing Syrian civil war; Burlap and Barrel gets theirs instead from Turkey.
Use Silk Chili instead of Aleppo pepper to add a fruity, spicy accent to our Turkish Poached Eggs with Garlicky Yogurt (Çilbir)
. It's also ideal for blooming in oil and drizzling over roasted potatoes or Turkish Red Lentil Soup
. Or try it in our Mint and Browned Butter Yogurt Dip
, which balances the chili's heat with rich, creamy elements. Similarly, our Spaghetti with Cilantro Yogurt
uses warming Aleppo-style pepper in both the sauce and as a finishing touch.
