Las Hermanas - Organic Hot Picante Paprika

Organic Hot Picante Paprika

Widely regarded as one of the finest forms of smoked paprika in the world, Spanish pimentón de la Vera is so special that it has an internationally recognised Protected Designation of Origin (DOC) status. The method for preparing this organic smoked paprika goes back centuries: every September, peppers of varying heat are hand-picked by the locals in La Vera before being slow-dried over smoldering holm oak logs for two weeks, which draws out their moisture while maintaining their original flavor and contributing smoky notes. The peppers require daily turning by hand and then are pulverised by traditional stone mills. Because of these traditional methods, the paprika has an intense, penetrating flavour that adds depth to any dish. The tin is super cute, too. 70g
