Rey De La Vera, Pimenton Smoked Sweet, 2.6 OunceRey de la Vera represents four generations of paprika producers. Smoked pimenton, or paprika, is a staple of the Mediterranean diet and is used to give both color and flavor to many traditional dishes. Rey de la Vera's unique drying process over an oak wood burning stove gives the paprika the aroma, flavor and distinctive color the La Vera Pimenton is known for. The sweet pimenton is made from the small round ñora peppers, while the hot pimenton is produced from a mixture of guindilla peppers for their heat, and the jarandilla pepper (a long pepper with intense red color indigenous to the Vera region) to soften the bite.
- Cradled by the Vera's microclimate and pampered by the most ancestral tradition, this delicate and delicate paprika is born.
- Both its excellent aroma and its particular smoky flavor, characteristic of the traditional drying system with oak and holm oak wood, are the result of ancient methods passed down from parents to children and a careful process of elaboration.
- Peppers are smoked for 15 days on oak and holm oak wood, dehydrating slowly and gently, with patience and the work of expert hands, until acquiring that characteristic smell and color that makes them so special.
- An authentic artisan Spanish spice used in soups, stews, salsas and many other Spanish dishes.
