Turkish Pepper Paste (hot) by Öncü brand – or Acı Biber Salçası in Turkish – is a thick deep red paste made using peppers grown in the South-Eastern region of Turkey. Crushed and sun-dried handpicked red peppers are turned into a thick paste adding salt as a preservative to ensure a longer shelf life. Although making your own pepper paste at home is widely practiced by women in villages and small towns, even today, a store-bought packaged unit is ideal for home and cooking use as it is available in convenient glass jars/bottles.
