You learn something new everyday. I've never heard of Aleppo pepper before. I'm guessing that they look like black (or pink or white) peppercorns?

The past is gone it's all been said.

No, it is pepper; as in Capsicum. So in that respect, it is like paprika.

I thought this name looked familiar. I checked my spice rack and see Penzey's had sent me a free sample that I never opened. It is opened now!

To me, Aleppo pepper tastes a little sweet, with a little heat. Not peppery or tongue-biting at all. And I normally can't take anything with "hot". I use it on buttered corn, roasted carrots, add it to chili, all sorts of stuff.
To me, the fruitiness is a more forward flavor in Aleppo pepper than the cumin.

Aleppo Pepper

Think I will add Aleppo pepper to my next Penzey's order. Sounds intriguing.
