Bit of a bait and switch afoot here. Though that was a convenient title for this post, I'm afraid that this next lurking fridge troll is not Persian at all, it's biber salçase. Literally, eh..."pepper paste". Turkish.
What we use this for? I mean, I read the Wikipedia entry, but I need recipes. In English, por favor.
Well, this is not a bad place to start. This is also very informative.
