The website cookforsyria.com has more information on the participating chefs and links to donate directly to Unicef's fund for Syrian children.
From what I have read, Aleppo Pepper is called Pul Biber in Turkey and Halaby Pepper in Arabic.
I did an image search from Google on Urfa Biber. Some of the peppers shown look exactly like Aleppo...the bottom is squared off. Some of the peppers shown look like a bulls horn type, where the bottom is a point. So take some photos of Urfa Biber peppers for us, davidjp, when you grow them.
Yes, lisaann, from this forum, I sent seeds to davidjp, pepperhead, and spike.
I sent many more to Instagram gardeners and Facebook gardeners I am friends with. I will be growing more Aleppo Pepper seeds next year, as well as Nineveh Tomato seeds. (From Mosul, once called Ninevah, Iraq.)
davidjp, pepperhead212, spike2, I finally flaked, salted, and oiled the rest of my dehydrated Aleppo Peppers yesterday. All said and done, I got 3 full 8 oz canning jars of finished spice from 2 plants worth of peppers. I did not dehydrate all of my peppers, however. We ate a lot of them fresh, too.
