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 tend 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 colour. 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 don't get mouldy, but once opened, it is a good idea to keep them in the fridge.
