Aleppo Peppers - how to salt process in the traditional Syrian manner

glizando | Sep 14, 201710:07 AM     9

have been a fan of Aleppo Peppers since I first read Paula Wolfert's, Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean, many year ago. This year I finally found seed and I've grown 4 plants in my backyard. They are producing a lot of peppers and they are starting to ripen. I have not been able to find out how they are traditionally dried.

Mostly, I would like to understand how the salt is used.
