Size: 2.64oz/75g
Origin: Alicante, Spain

This gourmet quality paprika is far superior to the bland Hungarian or Domestic varieties available at your local supermarket. The Fresh pods from the mild Nora Pepper are smoked over oak logs to develop the flavors. This technique brings out different aspects of the peppers complex flavor, thus we suggest trying out at least two different varieties in your cooking. Peppers smoked over an oak fire develop into a rich and complex palate which is much more powerful and pronounced than in our sun-dried varieties.

We suggest Sweet and Hot Varieties for sauces, vegetables, fish, eggs, and French Fries. We suggest the Bittersweet and Smoked varieties for Paella, Fabada, beef, lamb, or for use on the grill.

As with saffron, pimenton releases its flavor when heated. Sprinkled over a colorless dish, the pimenton will liven up the color without changing the flavor. Adding to a cooking recipe, the flavor will be released to infuse the dish with complex flavors.

One important note: The sugar content of pimenton is very high, thus you must be cautious not to overcook the spice or it will burn. Add to a cooking dish only when liquids are present, and then keep a watchful eye if using high heat.
