The key ingredient in a broad variety of Spanish cuisines, including authentic paella, is smoky, rust red Pimentón de La Vera, or smoked paprika. Pimentón is made with freshly picked peppers that have been smoked for 15 days over encina oak wood fires. It has a slight sweet flavor and a strong smoked taste. It stands out from the paprika offered in most supermarkets thanks to its robust smokey flavor. To add color and spice to rice dishes, stews, meats, and vegetables, use this paprika.Each year in early October, the peppers used to make La Dalia Pimentón de la Vera are hand-harvested. Pimentón de La Vera’s original and greatest brand, La Dalia, still uses stone mills to make the finest, most flavorful smoked paprika in Spain.
La Dalia was the first enterprise to create La Vera’s famous smoked paprika, and was founded in 1913. This family-owned business has been producing high-quality pimentón using traditional methods for decades. This Pimentón of La Vera has a Denominación de Origen (D.O.) stamp, guaranteeing its high quality and authenticity!
