Urfa Biber, also known as Isot, hails from the sun-soaked city of Şanlıurfa in southeastern Turkey. The time-honored chili spice boasts a medium lingering heat, rich wine-like flavor and a delicate hint of smoke. Just a sprinkle will add a depth of flavor to everything from traditional recipes to your morning scrambled eggs. Save when you purchase Urfa Biber as part of our new Pepper Bundle.

To make Urfa Biber, chili peppers are harvested at the peak of ripeness. They’re then sun-dried, carefully cured, and ground to be about the size of kosher salt. In Turkey, this ancient spice is used to add a subtle kick to kebabs, soups, stews, and more.

    How To Use

    Use this dark burgundy spice to add rich color and flavor to marinades, roast vegetables, homemade hot sauce, salad dressing, and more. We love to swap in Urfa pepper in any recipe that calls for standard chili flakes to add a distinctly Mediterranean flair. A final sprinkle also makes for a beautiful garnish for dips like hummus, baba ganoush, and muhammara.
