Jansal Valley® Urfa Biber Chile Flakes
Urfa Biber, also known as isot pepper, is a dried Turkish chili pepper from the Urfa region of Turkey. The red pepper ripens to a dark maroon color and is then harvested. After the harvest the pepper is sun-dried during the day and then put through a process at night called "sweating" in which the peppers are wrapped tightly to retain a bit of moisture. It is often described as having a smoky or raisin-like taste. Though less spicy than most chili peppers, Urfa Biber chilies create a distinct heat which makes them a great replacement for regular chili flakes when looking to add complexity and depth to a dish.
