Piquillo peppers

£4.50

Whole Piquillo Peppers from Lodosa are small tangy chili peppers found only in the rural village of Lodosa in Navarra, a region close to La Rioja.

They are fire-roasted then hand-peeled and packed in their own juices.

Their firmness, softness of flesh and characteristic sweet, slightly smoky flavour, and just bitter enough, makes them a classic Spanish tapas.

What a delicacy!

The piquillo from Lodosa can be recognized by its bright red color, small size (8-10 cm),  flat triangular shape and slightly curved tip. The flesh is thin and compact. The average pepper weighs 35-50 gr.

Planting is in late May and the peppers are harvested manually between September and November.

Once in the factory, the peppers are washed and then flame roasted over an open flame. This has the effect of cooking away the majority of the water in the pepper, intensifying the natural sweetness of the pepper.
