Smoky, cocoa-y, sweet and spicy topping for grilled veggies and meats, eggs, pastas, dips and spreads!
Sweet, spicy peppers, grown on a 12-acre chili farm around the ancient Turkish city of Urfa, are harvested by hand, then sun-cured. The resulting smoky, raisin-y chili peppers are stone ground with sea salt and sunflower oil to preserve flavor and freshness, so you can enjoy the of urfa chilis all year-round.
Sprinkle with gusto on grilled steaks and pork chops. Whisk into a frittata topped with goat cheese and herbs. Keep on your dining table as a topping for all manner of dinner dishes, like chicken and rice, pizza, casseroles and more. Our favorite way to showcase and appreciate the insanely delicious, nuanced smoky, sweet, cocoa and raisin flavors of Black Urfa Chili is to cook a high quality Italian pasta, like casarecciaor rigatoncini until al dente, drizzle with glugs of the freshest olive oil, squeeze a little lemon juice, then top generously with black urfa chili.
Behind every spice is a story. Within every story is a meaning. Locked up in every meaning is a sliver of intimacy between you and the surrounding world. When we understand spice this way, asconnection,we cook food more lovingly, share more deeply, and enjoy flavor more lustily.
The hallmark of The Meadow’s new and growing family of spices is our fixation on connection. We source spices that don’t just taste spectacularly good, they are meaningful to us. Every spice is a story, a tapestry woven of personal relationships, environmental stewardship, exotic adventure, and the joy of fragrances filling the home as we pulverize fresh ingredients with our own hands.
For many years now we’ve scoured the earth and the sea in search of craft salts that bring flavor and beauty to your food and a deeper connection to food, people, and nature to your table. Along the way, we’ve met our share of spice growers and merchants. While I’ve always brought these discoveries into my own home, I’ve only shared them with you, my dear customers, on rare occasions. Well, it’s high time we did!
Bitterman's single origin spices are gathered from around the world, in collaboration with expert spice hunters. We pack spices in small quantities to ensure freshness. We encourage you to use spices daily and replenish with a new box of spices as needed (hopefully, monthly!). Store in a cool, dry place.
