Chili Flakes Green Freeze-Dried
Freeze dried green chilli flakes that reconstitute in cooking to give the taste of freshly chopped, green chili.
There are literally hundreds of different chilies, all of which descend from the original ones discovered by the Spanish when they found the Americas. Prior to this chilies were unknown to the rest of the world.
The warming bite and delicious capsicum taste of chili was warmly embraced by nearly every nation on earth, thus we find some form of capsicum or chili in nearly every cuisine.
Dried chilies have a very different flavor to fresh ones, as upon drying a caramelization of the sugars takes place which creates a delicious, robust taste not found in fresh chilies, in the same way a sun-dried tomato has a more complex flavor profile than a fresh one.
