This summer, you can kick your favorite dishes up a notch with Trader Joe's new Honey Aleppo Sauce.
Aleppo peppers are a variety of chile peppers commonly used in Middle Eastern cooking. Though not as hot as crushed red chile flakes, Aleppo peppers are extra flavorful, which is why they make a great addition to sauces. Trader Joe's Honey Aleppo Sauce combines the peppers with olive oil and honey to create a mixture that's "sweet, savory, tangy, and slightly spicy." As Trader Joe's explains, "It brings the kind of heat that’s subtle at first, with the tangy overtones from red wine vinegar taking center stage." The result is a nuanced sauce that's not fiery, but helps to bring out the flavor in everything from grilled meats to rice dishes.
