Sundried Hot Pepper Paste

Harissa (hah-ree-suh) is an aromatic paste of sun dried peppers and spices from the Mediterranean and desert dwellers' culinary traditions. These ancient cooking traditions continue to withstand the test of time. According to an old Tunisian wives' tale a husband can judge his wife's affections by the amount of hot peppers she uses in her cooking. If the food becomes bland a man may believe his wife no longer loves him. Add a teaspoonful to the base of your favorite dish, dilute with olive oil to spread on bread, mix with mayonnaise to give it a kick, add to eggs before cooking, or use to marinate meats and seafood. Keep it simple and serve as an appetizer. A spoonful on a small dish with a generous drizzle of Fafani Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great start to any meal as a dip with crusty bread. Your cooking will have that “extra something” that no one will identify but everyone will love. Visit our recipe page for inspiration. Enjoy!
