Mitmita (pronounced mitʼmitʼa) is an Ethiopian seasoning that appeals to berbere spice lovers that want a little extra kick. Spicy and complex, it begins with a burst of heat from authentic birds eye chili powder, adding a kiss of savory sea salt before finishing out with resinous notes of cardamom and clove. The result is a spice blend that seems custom-made for adding nuanced flavors and a wake-you-up dose of spice to proteins like beef, as well as hearty soups and stews. Not for the faint of heart, Mitmita is used heavily in Ethiopian cuisine to delight lovers of spices that can handle their heat. If you've had a craving for something a little different that will inspire seconds - not yawns - try a pinch of Mitmita Ethiopian seasoning from USimplySeason during your next authentic meal.

USimplySeason’s Aleppo Marash Pepper Blend is a spicy, sweet, and fruity fusion of two of the Middle East’s most alluring red peppers: the Syrian Aleppo Pepper and the Turkish Marash Pepper. This unique pepper blend is similar to your typical red pepper flakes, but with a few key upgrades that elevate it above your average red pepper flakes! The unique process used for drying these peppers results in them retaining more of their natural oils, giving this blend a delicious slightly oily flavor and texture. In addition, the Aleppo and Marash pepper’s unique flavor profiles create a sensual and complex pepper blend - with notes of fruit, raisin, and cumin that gradually give way to a slightly spicy kick.
Unfortunately, the ongoing Syrian Civil War has caused massive damage to many Syrian pepper farms - which has lead to worldwide Aleppo Pepper scarcity and even some shady companies trying to pass off cheap fake red pepper flakes as real Aleppo pepper! We at USimplySeason work hard to source only quality and authentic peppers, and we are proud to guarantee the authenticity of our Aleppo Marash blend!
