Organic crushed red chilli flakes are a condiment consisting of dried and crushed (as opposed to ground) red chilli peppers. Dried chillies have a very different flavour to fresh ones, as upon drying a caramelisation of the sugars takes place which creates a delicious, robust taste not found in fresh chillies.
This condiment is most often produced from cayenne-type peppers, usually within the 30,000–50,000 Scoville unit range. The town of Bukovo in the Republic of Macedonia is credited with the creation of crushed red chilli. Crushed red chilli shakers have become a standard on tables at Mediterranean restaurants and especially pizza parlours around the world.
How to use
Crushed chilli flakes can be used to add spice and flavour to any meal, including omelettes, soups, salad dressings and pasta. It is also common in pickling blends, chowders, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce and sausage.
