Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Aleppo Pepper (pronounced "ah-LEH-poe"), Capsicum annuum, is also called Aleppo chili flakes, Aleppo pepper flakes, or Aleppo chilli.
The Aleppo Chile is native to the region around the city of Aleppo in northern Syria. It did not originate in Aleppo, but once traders brought this pepper's ancestors over from the New World and across northern Africa, it quickly took root in the fields and the hearts of the Syrian people.
Our Aleppo Chile Peppers are grown from Aleppo pepper seeds, carried across the border, and transplanted in Turkey. Despite the supply chain difficulties, many chileheads consider Aleppo pepper to be one of the wonders of the chile world and a flavorful departure from the more ubiquitous crushed red pepper flakes.
Aleppo peppers have a fruity, raisin-like flavor with an undertone of earthy cumin and lemony top notes.
The heat builds slowly, hitting the back of the throat first but dissipating quickly, leaving hints of sour and sweetness.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
