Before grinding, the peppers are not dried in the sun, but smoked over oak fires, producing an unmistakeable smokey and slightly peppery taste.
The smoked peppers are then ground on stone mills to maintain a low temperature and preserve their taste and aroma. Grinding is monitored by eye to achieve the right degree of fineness.
A true artisan Spanish smoked paprika from the experts at Santo Domingo in La Vera, Extremadura.
