Spice up your life!!! Dried hot peppers are a great way to give your dishes a bit of heat and flavor. They can be ground into a paste or flakes, incorporated into salsa and sauces, rehydrated and added to soups, stews and curries or stir fried in oil.
Each pack will contain 3 types of peppers and 3 or 5 individual peppers of each variety, depending on the size. For the Chef Pepper Pack, these specialty peppers are great additions to lots of dishes and are often featured on restaurant menus. Now you can experiment with them in your own kitchen.
Your pack may contain:
  • Aleppo : Mild to medium heat. These heirloom peppers are from Syria and make a great harissa paste. They can be ground into flakes or powder and have earthy, cumin undertones and a bit of fruity tang. Great for seasoning meats, beans and stews.
  • Espelette : Mild to medium heat. These peppers are from the Basque region and are slightly smoky and sweet. This is great to grind a powder and add to meat and vegetable dishes.
  • Calabrian : Mild to medium heat. These Italian peppers are great to add a bit of kick to your pasta dishes. You can grind them into flakes and add to your pizza or make a chili paste with garlic and oil.
  • Spicy Paprika : Medium heat. This Hungarian pepper is not your typical store bought paprika. It has some serious heat and flavor and traditionally is used in Hungarian stews like Goulash but can give any dish a wonderful fiery kick.
  • Lemon Drop (Aji Limon) : Medium heat. Citrus overtones. This Peruvian pepper is a great pairing for fish and also works well in stir fries.
  • Cayenne : Medium heat. A classic spice. This works well to ground into powder or flakes and give all your dishes some heat.
  • Fish : Medium heat. A mid-Atlantic hierloom pepper traditionally used in African American cuisine and seafood houses in the region.
  • Korean : Mild to medium heat. This can be used to make kimchi or gochujang or throw in a stirfry.
  • Aji Dulce : Mild heat. Fruity and amazing aroma. Used in Puerto Rican dishes.
  • Trinidad Perfume : Mild heat. Fruity. Wonderful to add to salsas.

    The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)

    The farm borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things! Sunny Side
