Pimenton Ahumado - Rich and complex with Smokey overtones, this paprika is the foundation for many Spanish dishes. Use this paprika to develop rich flavors on meat and seafood dishes. This gourmet quality paprika is far superior to bland Hungarian or Domestic varieties. The Fresh pods from the mild Nora Pepper are smoked over oak logs to develop the flavors. This technique brings out different aspects of the peppers complex flavor. Peppers smoked over an oak fire develop into a rich and complex palate which is much more powerful and pronounced than in sun-dried varieties. Our suggestion is to use the Smoked variety for Paella, beef, lamb, or anything grilled. As with saffron, pimenton releases its flavor when heated. Sprinkled over a cold dish, the pimenton will liven up the color without changing the flavor. Added while cooking, the flavor will be released to infuse the dish with complex flavors. Please note that the sugar content of pimenton is very high, so you must be careful not to overcook or it will burn. Add while cooking only when liquids are present.
