Piquillo peppers are small peppers that are usually grown in the north of Spain. They are quite sweet and present very little heat - if any at all. They are more akin to their capsicum cousins than their heat-laden brothers. They are usually harvested and stuffed with a variety of items, such as seafood, meat, and cheese.
In this case, Coquet has sourced the very best piquillo peppers that Northern Spain has to offer. They are then preserved in a brine mixture and stored in jars. The result is a fresh, soft pepper that is ready to be sliced and included as part of a charcuterie board or stuffed.
They are very popular and served as part of tapas. For your next tapas menu, combine a mixture of cream cheese and grated manchego. For added flavor, add paprika and a little jalapeño for a little kick, should you wish. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and serve cold.
Store your tin/jar in a cool, dark, and dry pantry. Store in fridge once opened.
