While originally from the Americas, red chile peppers have found a place to thrive in the southern region of Italy. The chile pepper (or peperoncino) is celebrated in every home, usually drying in the sun of their kitchens as decoration, just waiting to be incorporated into a recipe. The spicy, peppery essence of these chiles complements the deep tomato and olive oil flavors of Mediterranean cuisine perfectly.
Spicy red pepper flakes contain both the dried flesh of the pepper and the seeds. Both are lightly toasted to create a smoky and spicy pepper flake.
We make our Crushed Red Peppers from the Capsicum frutenscens chile pepper, a small red chili with a moderate to spicy heat.
