Once upon a time spices were a currency of their own, to be bartered and traded for; pirates often plundered ships that dealt in spices due to their vast riches. And today, saffron is among the most expensive foodstuffs by weight.
So when you purchase spices, don’t opt for the no-name brands in the supermarket – especially when it comes to paprika. Because you’re missing out on the beauty of La Dalia!
This Protected Destination of Origin spice has its origins in 16th Century La Vera, Spain, when Jeronimian monks guarded its secrets behind the walls of their cloister. Slowly however, their technique and recipe escaped the confines of their monastery and in to the farming community, and La Vera boomed as a region of paprika specialisation.
The chillies grown in La Vera for La Dalia paprika create three distinct varieties: sweet, bittersweet and hot. Discover all three, and get cooking with authentic spices!
