Why you'll love it
Steenbergs Organic Chilli Powder - or organic ground chilli - is made by grinding hot, dried organic chillies and should not to be confused with Mexican-style chile powder which is mixed with cumin and other herbs. There is a vast range of different types of chili where some are sold within Steenbergs specialist chilli section. Heat levels vary from mild through to death-defyingly hot, but with Steenbergs Organic Chili Powder we take dried organic chillis that we grind and blend to go for a consistent heat of around 50,000 Scoville units, which is plenty of heat for most of us. Add as much organic chilli or as little as you and your guests desire.
Steenbergs Organic Chilli is a blended chilli of mid spicy heat of about 50,000 SHUs - currently it's 47,600 SHUs. Chilli plants vary considerably in size, appearance and heat. Capsicum annuum is a herb or small shrub, with oval leaves and firm woody stems, growing to 1 metre high (3ft). They are usually grown as annuals as the yield of chilli fruits diminishes after the first year. The chilli pod is a many seeded red berry with a shiny skin that comes in a wide variety of shapes, colours, thickness and spicy heat.
