The Aleppo pepper goes by a variety of names including Near Eastern pepper, Halaby pepper, and Halab Pepper; however, they are actually named after the town Aleppo in northern Syria. Most Aleppo peppers are grown in Syria. The pepper has a moderate heat level with some fruitiness and mild, cumin-like flavors. The crushed flakes are typically slightly milder and more oily than conventional crushed red peppers, with a hint of saltiness and a slightly raisin-like flavor. Aleppo peppers can be used to provide flavor and body to soups, stews, and sauces. Crushed Aleppo peppers can be used as a substitute for crushed red peppers or paprika.
