Piment d'Espelette is a Basque red chili pepper powder. This renowned spice is made from hand-picked Espelette peppers that are carefully slow dried by sunlight over the course of approximately 14 days. Its production process employs only traditional methods, resulting in artisan hand-crafted quality in each jar. Espelette pepper is extremely versatile and is often used to give meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables a moderately spicy kick. It is heat sensitive, so use it only as a finishing ingredient or table seasoning. This historic product has AOP certification which guarantees its quality and authenticity.
