Our "Pimentón de la Vera” paprika comes form the family firm of HIJOS Y SOBRINOS DE PEDRO SANCHEZ with their award winning "Caballo de Oros" brand. Since 1938 they have passed the techniques and processes down through the family ensuring both tradition and quality prevail. Our "Pimentón de la Vera” carries the coveted EU  designation of Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP, or Protected Denomination of Origin) 

"Pimentón de la Vera” is probably the most famous of all the paprika from Spain. La Vera is a county, in the province of Cáceres in Extremadura,  Paprika was first introduced to this area in the 1500's from America. "

"Pimentón de la Vera” paprika is made in 3 types dulce (sweet), agridulce (bittersweet) & picante (hot). It is made by grinding various types of peppers (Jaranda, Jariza, Jeromín & bola) in different proportions to give the required spice.

If you can't decide, why not have all three. They can all be used for a multitude of dishes from your paella, sautéd potatoes, stews, marinade & rubs etc (although I would only use the sweet paprika on paella!) . It should be added at the last minute and followed immediately by liquid. It can also be sprinkled raw on foods such as boiled potatoes, cheeses, green vegetables, octopus, or pork.

The "La Vera" process is different from those used in other paprika production areas . A fire of evergreen oak or oak firewood provides the heat which is necessary for the perfect dehydration of the peppers . This slow process takes from ten to fifteen days, during which the peppers are turned until they reach the ideal drying point. This traditional drying system gives Pimentón de la Vera its three essential characteristics: aroma, taste, and colour stability. The dry peppers are then ground using traditional stone mills to form the paprika that we know so well.

The name "Caballo de Oros" comes from the Spanish playing cards where it is the Caballo (Knight ) of Oros ( Gold or coins) which would be equivalent the the Jack of Diamonds in a UK deck !

I have only used the "Sweet" one of these up to date but I can say it is one of the best flavoured spices and very fresh. I will be re-ordering soon!
