Urfa Biber is a mild red pepper that’s sundried and wrapped tight to sweat (thereby preserving the oil from the pepper's skin) before being ground into a multipurpose spice. Its distinctive purple hues make it visually appealing, but its flavor is even more unique: a complex mix of sour, smoky, and slight sweetness and spice.
It's a versatile ingredient, but pairs well with pungent cheese, robust vegetables, braised meats and salads.
