Urfa Biber Chile FlakesUrfa Biber (also known as Isot pepper) is a dried Turkish pepper cultivated in the Urfa region of Turkey. It is often described as having a smoky, 'raisin-like' taste, and is less spicy than many other chili peppers, but has a long, lingering finish of heat on the palate. Urfa Biber is technically a red pepper, ripening to a dark maroon on the plant. The peppers go through a two-part process, where they are sun-dried during the day and wrapped tightly at night. The night process is called 'sweating', and works to infuse the dried flesh with the remaining moisture of the pepper. The result is an appearance ranging from deep purple to a dark, purplish black. While Urfa Biber is traditionally used in the savory dishes of Turkey, with its similar flavor profile to chocolate (raisin-y, fruity, smoky), Chefs in North America have been getting creative by using it in sweets such as cakes, cupcakes and brownies, or infusing ice cream and cr me brulee bases. For savory dishes, try using in marinades for poultry or meat, creamy mushroom sauces, roasted or stewed eggplant dishes or sprinkle over hummus and drizzle with a bold olive oil for a kick.
