Mealthy Tip

Add Aleppo pepper to your spice pantry. It has a mild heat level, is coarsely ground, and salt is used during the drying process. Red crushed pepper can be substituted but be sure to use less.

I really like this spread! It has a great texture and delicious flavor. I didn't have pomegranate molasses, but I still love the way it turned out.

This was a delicious dip with authentic middle eastern flavors. I used about 1 teaspoon of red crushed pepper instead of aleppo pepper, but am definitely on the hunt to find and try this ingredient.
