The charring will keep you coming back for more. These are authentic fire-roasted piquillo peppers, with all the necessary designations and accompanying stickers to assure you of this authenticity. While you'll certainly appreciate such affirmation, you'll savor the spicy-sweet peppers themselves, atop salads, in sandwiches, and particularly in this romesco sauce.
The D.O. Lodosa designation of origin certifies these piquillo peppers are solely the preserved, entire fruit grown and prepared within an eight municipality area in Spain. It assures the highest-quality piquillo, with a spicy-sweet flavor suitable for numerous tapas, including being stuffed with bonito del norte tuna.
Included in the Saveur 100 with other top-quality Spanish conservas (preserved foods).
Piquillo peppers have a triangular shape and rich, red color. Harvested by hand between the middle of September and November each year, the peppers are cleaned and fire-roasted, then one-by-one meticulously hollowed, skinned, and deseeded. Along with a complex flavor, the peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and calcium.
