Terre Exotique Angel Hair Chili 15g

Delicate but Spicy

Bril¬≠liant threads of vibrant red, Terre Exo¬≠tique Angel Hair Chili are thin strands of sun-dried red chili pep¬≠pers. Also called Saf¬≠fron Chili, this beau¬≠ti¬≠ful spicy chili resem¬≠bles longer saf¬≠fron stems and can be used in much the same way. 


An ele¬≠gant sta¬≠ple to your kitchen pantry, Terre Exo¬≠tique Angel Hair Chili is a chili pep¬≠per from the Tian¬≠jin region of Chi¬≠na. These del¬≠i¬≠cate, thin threads of sun-dried red chili ranks 5‚ĀĄ10 or 30,000 on the Scov¬≠ille scale, about as hot as a Jalape√Īo pepper.

A gor¬≠geous shade of red with a light and airy appear¬≠ance, this chili is spicy, fra¬≠grant with an extreme¬≠ly sub¬≠tle fruity fla¬≠vor that lends an added spice and fla¬≠vor com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty or an eye-pop¬≠ping gar¬≠nish to any dish you prepare!


Its medi¬≠um heat and depth of flavour allows a ver¬≠sa¬≠til¬≠i¬≠ty for this spice in the kitchen. Terre Exo¬≠tique Angel Hair Chili adds a lay¬≠er of flavour to all kinds of cream-based soups, sal¬≠ads and hors d‚Äôoeuvres. Also mar¬≠velous as a gar¬≠nish for that vibrant pop of red color.

Sim¬≠i¬≠lar to saf¬≠fron from where it gets its moniker, added prepa¬≠ra¬≠tion is rec¬≠om¬≠mend¬≠ed to bring out the full flavours of this chili. To release the aro¬≠ma and bring out the full flavour of this pep¬≠per, gen¬≠tly toast in a pan for 30 sec¬≠onds (it burns eas¬≠i¬≠ly, each sec¬≠ond will count) before adding to your dish or if used in broths, pael¬≠las and risot¬≠tos, rehy¬≠drate with a lit¬≠tle hot water.


A chili with East Asian ori¬≠gins, Angel Hair Chili are pep¬≠pers found near the shores of the Yel¬≠low Sea, in the Tian¬≠jin region of Chi¬≠na. Made from sun-dry¬≠ing fine juli¬≠ennes of whole long chili pep¬≠pers, its ele¬≠gant and feath¬≠er-light appear¬≠ance is eas¬≠i¬≠ly mis¬≠tak¬≠en for a sweet pep¬≠per, when in fact it is quite pun¬≠gent and spicy with a 30,000 SHU on the Scov¬≠ille scale, hot¬≠ter than a French Espelette pep¬≠per but less than a Thai Bird Chilli.
