Raindrops on Roses… & Pepper

Every once in a while I run across something that is the perfect version of itself.  These are my favorite things, and I’d like to share them with you.  This week’s edition:  PEPPER.  ALEPPO PEPPER.

The first time I heard about this, it was in a recipe for Roasted Chicken.  I couldn’t find it anywhere so I improvised with regular black pepper.  I finally found it when I was visiting Eataly in Chicago.  I will never substitute this again. This pepper is perfect on roasted chicken, or steak.  It has an almost citrusy flavor, and it’s not too hot.  I just love it.  So, when ever I find it, I buy it.  Unfortunately, it’s out of stock on the Eataly site.  I suppose there’s always Amazon, but then I don’t have an excuse to go to Eataly.

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think.  Got any favorites you’d like to share?
