Cretan Hot Chili Powder
Cretan chili is not only tasty, but it also adds a bit of fire to your cuisine and has some amazing health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, the peppers also contain capsaicin, a chemical component that causes the brain to perceive heat or spice and has been shown to help boost the circulatory system as well as have anti-inflammatory properties.
While this ingredient is certainly spicy, it also has an amazing ability to enhance the flavors of other ingredients. You can use it to liven up just about any sweet or savory dish; try a pinch in chocolate recipes including hot chocolate, frosting, sauce, and pudding. For a spicy edge, sprinkle this medium-hot chili pepper over potatoes, curries, soups, stews, burgers, and roasted veggies.
◉ Spices should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor.
