Hot Pepper flakes
Named after the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, this spice is now largely sourced from Turkey and elsewhere, due to the challenges of growing and exporting from the war-torn Syrian region.
It comes from a burgundy chile also known as the Halaby pepper. Once ripened, the peppers are semi-dried, de-seeded, and coarsely ground. Aleppo is a common Middle Eastern condiment, traditionally used to season meat, beans, salads, and muhammara dip, but it can be used like any other dried red pepper.
