Food Facts
Pimenton is a unique spice made from spicy red peppers that have been harvested and smoke-dried with oak wood, which gives the pimenton its smoky flavor. Pimenton comes in three varieties: sweet and mild (dulce); bittersweet medium hot (agridulce) and hot (picante). The level of spiciness is up to you! Pimenton can be stored in a cool dry place for up to 2 years. Though a distant cousin of Hungarian paprika, pimenton has no good substitute for use in authentic Spanish cooking.
