With head hanging in shame, Jr. Burger King hamburger and F.F.

Pirate picked it up on his way back home from the dentist. Thought he was doing something nice for me. I think it was so that he wouldn't have to cook.

Last night I made my first Turkish recipes from my new cookbook: a baked kofta (meatball type of mixture) covered with tomato sauce and served with rice and orzo pilaf. The meat is flavored with fresh onion, garlic and parsley, cumin and Aleppo pepper. Really good.Click image for larger version

That's beautiful and interesting GG. I never heard of Aleppo pepper, and found this..
Quote:
This spice about half as hot as the crushed red chile flakes you put on your late-night dollar-slice pizza, and easily twice as flavorful. Like salt, Aleppo-style pepper is a flavor enhancer. It marries slow-building heat with earthy, cumin-y undertones and a little hit of fruity tang—and yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds.
I see that Penzey's carries it.

I love Aleppo pepper, Kayelle. It's great on roasted carrots, in scrambled eggs, in chili, lots of uses.

BTW, may I suggest comparing prices between Penzys and The Spice House when you shop? I've found out that almost every time I compare, a Spice House purchase is less expensive even if paying for shipping. Happily, both company's quality is superior and equal.

Looks wonderful, GG. I looked through your new Istanbul cookbook from the link you posted. YUM.

Thanks, Kay. Yes, I got some from Penzeys many years ago, after I visited Turkey. A few months ago, I discovered a Mediterranean deli/grocery store near my doctor's office that has bulk spices, so I bought some there, along with other Middle Eastern ingredients.

Btw, the war in Syria has decimated the Aleppo pepper export business, so for the last few years, it actually comes from Turkey.

Thank you, Cheryl. I'm looking forward to next week's edition. I'm planning to make a Turkish dish every week, to practice with the flavors.
