Las Hermanas Smoked Paprika Hot 70g TinSKU: LHP70.
Smoked paprika from the famous La Vera region of Spain.
Las Hermanas is a longstanding family-run business (established 1940) specialising in the manufacture of Pimentón De La Vera.
Pimentón De La Vera has been produced in the Extremadura region of La Vera in Spain for centuries, with cultivation beginning in the Yuste Monastery around the 16th century.
Pimentón De La Vera carries the coveted EU designation of Denominación de Origen Protegida (Protected Denomination of Origin), a guarantee of the quality and consistency of the paprika produced in the region.
In La Vera, the peppers used to make the paprika enjoy a privileged microclimate and develop naturally; sheltered by the rugged peaks of the Sierra de Gredos mountains, gorges and green meadows through which the Tiétar river flows.
The process used to create Pimentón De La Vera is unique. An American oak wood fire provides the heat necessary for the perfect dehydration of the peppers. This process takes from ten to fifteen days, during which expert hands cleverly turn the peppers until the ideal degree of dryness is achieved. This traditional process is what gives Pimentón De La Vera its three essential characteristics: aroma, taste, and colour stability.
Pimentón De La Vera, has a distinct smoky flavor and aroma and comes in three varieties: Dulce (Sweet), Agridulce (Bittersweet) and Picante (Hot).
