Piment d'Espelette Paprika
Piment d’ Espelette is a paprika from southwest France. Only a specific quantity is produced every year in accordance with knowledge passed down through generations. Chiles are hung on cords to dry. This dries the chiles slowly giving them a full-bodied, mature flavor. They are then coarsely ground into a bright orange powder.
Piment d’Espelette has a spiciness that is characterized by a bold, warm flavor. Try in soups or sauces but add toward the end of the cooking process to keep its full flavor. This paprika is also great on eggs, fish, meat, on mashed potatoes and other vegetables.
