This smoked Spanish paprika, known in Spain as Pimenton de la Vera Dulce, has a gentle, smoky flavor and no heat. It’s a popular ingredient in many Mediterranean recipes and essential for authentic Spanish cooking. The peppers are dried slowly over an oak fire for several weeks for a sweet, rich, smoky flavor. Excellent on grilled veggies, seafood, crispy potatoes, spinach, and chickpea stew or bean dishes. For a fun summer treat, mix smoked paprika, salt, and a little vanilla into butter and spread on corn on the cob before grilling.
