Espelette pepper is a cornerstone of Basque cuisine, where it has gradually replaced black pepper. The village of Espelette counts 1664 inhabitants and is famous for its AOP’s pepper (« Appellation d’Origine Protégée »), a certification granted to quality products not to be imitated. This condiment has been well-known for ages given its demanding cultivation and its original drying method. Indeed, producers pin it on their house wall, at the end of the summer to dry it with the sunlight. It is used daily in the traditional local cuisine.
Espelette pepper flesh (77%), vinegar, water, salt, spices.
Use the purée to season meats for grilling or to flavor soups, stews and especially sauces for a hearty and piquant twist, thanks to its prestigious taste: spicy and intense without being overpowering.
