THAI CHILES - Kosher/Gluten Free



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.

Product Description

The Thai chile is a relatively small pepper. However, it packs one heck of a punch in terms of heat. It also holds its heat well throughout the cooking process. When ripe, the chile turns a bright red and this is what is normally dried. Although they are available year round, fresh, the dried is prized by the Asian culture. Its heat does intensify with drying. Once dried, the chile usually curls slightly at the tip. This gives it its most common nickname of bird chile, after a birds beak. This is a key ingredient in almost every Thai curry. It can also be used to make aiolis, remoulades, stews and fiery broths.
