VIBRANT COLOR AND FLAVOR...
Piquillo peppers a small tangy peppers, native to the rural village of Lodosa in Navarra. Often referred to as the “red gold” of Lodosa. Picked whole and fire-roasted, hand-peeled and packed in their own juices. Brought to Spain by Christopher Columbus, once planted in Spain, developed their own characteristics and turned into a native Spanish variety. The piquillo peppers are harvested daily in September and November, as they ripen. They are roasted in wood-fired ovens, which gives them a slightly smokey taste.
Then they are peeled (not washed first) and seeded. During this process, they shrink by about 60%. Piquillo Peppers can be stuffed, roasted again, used for purées, salsas, strips in salads or pieces on canapés, relish trays, antipasto plates, etc.
