Do you use Red Pepper Paste?

gardencook | Feb 1, 2013 03:00 AM

My husband is from Turkey and I like to cook traditional dishes for him. We buy a lot of Turkish ingredients when we are there and online in between trips. One ingredient I use occasionally is pepper paste, both sweet and hot. Online, they can be bought only in quite large amounts and I never use them fast enough to not waste most of the jar. I'm looking for non-ethnic uses for them. What would be a good application of this ingredient? I've tried freezing the paste, too, but the texture seems to change when I do that. If you google for red pepper paste, you will see what it is, in case you're not familiar with it.
