Marash Turkish Chile Flakes (Maras)
This chile flake from southeast Turkey has garnered quite a following in recent years among chefs. The flakes are naturally oily and lend an earthy fruitiness to whatever dish they encounter. The heat level is medium.
These chiles are similar to the Aleppo from Syria but with more heat and less tartness. Add the flakes to salads, cheeses, pasta, grilled meats, eggs, soups and stews.
Need a shaker top? We suggest one with large holes. Don't forget to add one to your cart!

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
