Urfa Biber Chile Flakes
Urfa biber chilies are a dark maroon, sweet, smoky, earthy & citrusy chile originally from Turkey. Their heat starts mild and then builds as you eat them. These chile flakes are made exclusively from urfa biber chilies, no additional ingredients are added. The flakes are ground to a larger than average size, leaving them with a satisfyingly chewy texture.
Urfa biber chilies’ complex, smoky, fruity, spicy flavor pairs well with roasted vegetables, braised meats, strong cheeses & even desserts.
Store urfa biber chile flakes in an air tight container in a cool, dry, dark place.
RECIPES & TIPS
Urfa biber chile flakes can be used similarly to other chile flakes in all sorts of recipes (or as a seasoning) to impart sweet, smoky, earthy, citrusy flavor and some heat. Because of their higher than average oil content, toasting isn’t as necessary to enjoy their full flavor.
Try pairing them with roasted vegetables (especially red peppers or eggplant), braised meats, potent cheeses or other strong flavored dishes.
Urfa biber’s unique complex flavor even works well in desserts – try pairing these flakes with autumn spices, vanilla beans or chocolate.
