Our black chili comes from Urfa, Turkey, where it has been grown and cured for centuries. It has a rich, malty flavor with a lingering burn. The chili's ripen to a deep maroon color, and then are sun dried during the day and wrapped tightly in fabric at night. This technique cures the pepper in it's own juices and gives it a deeper, umami flavor and beautiful dark color. Great in stews, tomato sauces, salad dressings, brownies and other deserts, or just sprinkled over fluffy scrambled eggs.
