Pimentón is a unique spice made from spicy red peppers that have been harvested and smoke-dried with oak wood, which gives the pimentón its smoky flavor. Pimentón comes in three varieties: sweet and mild (dulce); bittersweet medium hot (agridulce) and hot (picante). The level of spiciness is up to you! Pimentón can be stored in a cool dry place for up to 2 years. Though a distant cousin of Hungarian paprika, pimentón has no good substitute for use in authentic Spanish cooking.
Fresh garlic is available year round. Purchase firm, plump bulbs with dry skins. Avoid garlic stored in the refrigerated section of the produce department. Store garlic in an open container in a cool, dark place.
