This is the pepper that, once powdered, becomes the famous Spanish smoked paprika. Pimenton is rarely exported whole, and is generally flaked, crushed, or powdered.
This pimenton comes direct from our paprika supplier in central Spain, who offers only his best, largest, and unbroken chilies.
In Spain, they’re used in all kinds of sauces, notably paella and many tapas. They’re also great with poultry, grilled meats, and fatty fish like salmon. Rehydrate to add to all kinds of sauces, or grind yourself.
