THAI CHILES - Kosher/Gluten Free

THAI-1

Description:

TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE - Tentative Arrival 1-23-15     The Thai Chile is a relatively small pepper, seldom growing larger than 3 inches long and about ¼ inch in diameter. Don’t let its size fool you though, at a glance this tiny chili turns a bright red when mature and packs a punch in terms of heat. The dried Thai Chile is prized by the Asian culture for adding more heat than flavor to their recipes and is a staple ingredient in almost every Thai curry. The heat of this chili intensifies as it dries and the shape of the peppers alters as well. Once dry, the chile usually curls up at the tip giving it the illusion of a bird’s beak, thus the nickname of “bird chili”. The Thai Chile can also be used to make aiolis, remoulades, stews and fiery broths.
