B&B's 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. Great in stews, tomato sauces, salad dressings, brownies and other desserts, or just sprinkled over fluffy scrambled eggs.
Epicurious called it a “Game-changing spice for home cooks who think they have everything” and Bon Appetit said that this Urfa was “the one I obsessed over in 2018.”

SOURCING: These chilis are names after Urfa, a town in southern Turkey on the Syrian border where the chilis are grown. They ripen to a deep maroon color, then are sun-dried during the day and wrapped tightly in fabric at night. This technique cures the peppers in their own juices and gives them a deeper, umami flavor and beautiful dark color.
