Black urfa chilli is originally a sweet, red spicy pepper. It grows in the hills around Urfa, an ancient city in Turkey. Once cut the fresh chillies are centrifuged to remove the seeds (bitter flavour). The remains begin the curing process conducted by the master curer. The degree of curing varies from each producer due to their individual methods passed down many generations, our ‘Master Curer’ leans towards the more cured side. It’s harvested and cured in the sun for 4 days to oxidise black, developing a chocolatey fruity sensation with a profound burn. Magic! Before completion it is ground into flakes with sea salt and sunflower seed oil, using huge granite wheels. The oil preserves its texture and flavour, so that your taste experience will never diminish!
It is classed as a medium heat with a unique flavour which could be likened to the experience of an espresso on a summer’s night.
Add to: Kebabs, grilled meats & veggies, stews, chillies & salad dressings.

At BoTree we are passionate purveyors of the highest quality spices. That’s why we choose single-origin spices which come from protected and designated regions. The most important thing about single origin is its traceability. With coffee, we like to know exactly where the beans come from and it’s exactly the same with spices. Blends have a bad reputation because the more you mix, the less pure they become - losing both quality and flavour. Using single-origin spices means you can experience one particular taste at its purest form, unique to that particular environment.
All our spices come from selected regions where the climate, soil and traditional know-how yield the finest spice crops.
