what is aleppo pepper and what can I use to sub for it?
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
Aleppo pepper is a dried red pepper, fairly mild and not agressive. A substitute would be piment d'esplette or just a good Spanish pimenton as in Pimenton de la Vera.
I have used four parts paprika and one part cayenne with sucess
I've noticed the flavor to be smokey and subtle. I think paprika would work well, especially if you have smoked paprika, maybe with a bit of regular chili pepper.
