Also known as the Halaby Pepper, the Aleppo pepper is used as a spice, particularly in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, named after the city of Aleppo in Northern Syria. It is commonly grown in Syria and Turkey, and is usually dried and crushed. It starts as pods which ripen to a burgundy color, then are semi-dried, de-seeded, and crushed or coarsely ground. This crushed chile has an ancho-like flavor with a little more heat and tartness.
