This rare chile is acclaimed in southwestern France, notably established in just one region of the Nive Valley in the southwest, and especially in the village of Espelette to the south. The red pods of the Espelette Chiles are dried and then ground into powder. Portraying the heat between paprika and cayenne, this richly spicy pepper has gained controlled-name status. The Espelette Chile is popular for its use in candies and drinks made with chocolate. It may also be used in the making of hams, pates, sausages, rolls and pies. Used by chefs in seafood dishes as a substitute for black pepper since it offers a sweeter, less bitter taste to it.

Ingredient Statement:

Chile Pepper.

Try a dash on egg dishes, or sprinkle on meats. Pimente de Espelette will add zest to your dishes without the scalding heat of most chiles. Sprinkle on sandwiches layered thick with caramelized onions and peppers and chunks of sausage and kraut or throw a pinch on your pasta dishes for a savory surprise!

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

No preparation required. Just add to recipe as called for.
