Description 

La Dalia Sweet Smoked Spanish Pimentón de la Vera - 70 gm - Spain

Pimentón de la Vera is a paprika made from luscious red peppers (pimientos) grown in the La Vera microclimate of Spain's Extremadura region. When harvest begins in the fall, entire families get involved. The mature peppers are placed in drying houses, where they are smoke-dried over oak fires - the mark of genuine pimenton de la vera. The dried peppers are then tone ground into a powder. La Dalia Pimenton de la Vera is D.O. protected - Pimento de la Vera was the first pepper to receive such designation in Spain. Dulce is the "sweet" version of this paprika (rather than hot-spicy); its hint of sweetness flows through its smoky warm flavor. The flavor of pimentón is much more complex than Hungarian paprika and is an absolutely essential ingredient for many Spanish dishes.

Use and Serving Suggestions
Use Pimentón de la Vera in all the ways you normally use Hungarian paprika and savor its depth of flavor and smoky complexity. We especially love Pimentón de la Vera on Roasted Chickpeas - a delicious, healthful snack.

About the Producer
Pimentón de la Vera was the first chile pepper product to be granted a Denominacíon de Origen, or controlled name status. Family history and expertise are the soul of Pimentón "la Dalia," a company that has long honored the land, its people and their traditions.

I've used this spice in everything from Southern cheese straws to butternut squash soup, and it turns everything it touches into gold. You wouldn't believe how deep and smoky it is.  Can't wait to try the hot version.
