Sicilian Chile Flakes

From late summer to early fall, Gangi Dante harvests their organic red chile peppers at peak ripeness and sun-dries them on the family farm. Sun-drying allows their fruity heat to concentrate and their texture to become brittle and easy to crush. Gangi Dante Crushed Red Chile Peppers boast a medium-level heat with just enough kick to complement a dish without competing with other flavors. Crushed and packed into a glass jar for easy sprinkling, these chile flakes are a versatile spice shelf staple.

How to use

Use Gangi Dante Crushed Organic Sicilian Red Chile Pepper flakes to add a touch of heat to pasta dishes like Pasta con le Sarde (Sardines and Wild Fennel) or Bucatini all'Amatriciana. Bloom flakes in a saucepan with hot olive oil, creating a quick chile oil condiment to swirl over soups or roasted vegetables and meats. Or make your own Sicilian chile paste by grinding the crushed pepper with a mild extra virgin olive oil like Biancolilla Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Titone until smooth. Spoon the paste into a jar, store in the refrigerator and use it to add oomph to pasta, seafood and tomato sauces.

This Chili pepper is wonderful flavor I even have given some to family and friends that feel the same on the flavor we all love it and use it in a lot of our cooking. I use it in my pasta sauce not for a heat but the unbelievable flavor this give my sauce is out of this world and you would never now chili was in the sauce. Excellent product! Thank You
