We always add a jar to our paella, and consider this a requirement to achieve a rich flavor. This all-natural sauce is carefully cooked prior to bottling to ensure a fresh flavor and rich taste. When added to a paella, the rich sauce coats the rice, adding more flavor and color, but also helps the formation of the soccarat.

WHAT IS THE SOCCARAT, YOU ASK?
Why, the soccarat is only the best part! The socarrat is where the rice and paella ingredients sit on the bottom of the pan and the natural sugars caramelize from the heat. This carmalization releases the hidden flavors in your ingredients, turning your would-be ordinary rice into an amazing flavor feast! This is the exact reason that paella pans are not perfectly flat on the bottom, but rather have a slightly bowl-shaped bottom to help in the formation of the socarrat.
