Las Hermanas Pimentón de La Vera DOP – Picante (Hot)

Produced by:

Hijos de Salvador López

in Extremadura, Spain

Ingredients: dried smoked peppers (99%), sunflower oil.

With a simple pinch, Las Hermanas Pimentón de La Vera Picante adds complexity and a lingering, fire-roasted heat. Pimentón de La Vera DOP is the quintessential Spanish "paprika" from La Vera in Extremadura, Spain, known for its smoky warmth and bright red pepper flavor. It can be Dulce (Sweet) or Picante (Hot), but it is always smoky.

Freshness is key to the flavor profile of Las Hermanas Pimentòn, made by third-generation family-run company Hijos de Salvador López. The peppers (all from local farmers in La Vera with a longstanding relationship to the company) are smoked immediately upon picking over indirect-heat oak fires for 10-15 days, and finished over a slightly warmer fire for three additional days. This process takes the ripe peppers to a low percentage of moisture, preserving flavor and color and imbuing them with the classic DOP smokiness. The dried peppers are then ground into a vibrant crimson powder. 

Essential for classic Spanish dishes like paella and patatas bravas, both the Dulce (Sweet) and Picante (Hot) add wood-fired flavor to any dish.
