Smoky, rust red Pimentón de La Vera, or smoked paprika, is the secret ingredient in a wide variety of Spanish recipes, including authentic paella. Made from freshly harvested peppers smoked for 15 days over encina oak wood fires, pimentón is slightly sweet tasting with an intense smoked flavor. Its intense smoky flavor sets it apart from the bland paprika found in most grocery stores.
La Dalia is the original and best brand of Pimentón de La Vera, and they still use stone mills to create the finest, most flavorful smoked paprika in Spain.
The peppers used to produce all three varieties of La Dalia Pimentón de la Vera are hand-harvested each year in early autumn. Just after harvesting, the peppers are sent to wooden smokehouses filled with the smoke of encina oak wood fires. For 15 days, the peppers are dried in this intense smoke. Once dried, La Dalia grinds the peppers on traditional granite millstones - resulting in a silky, rust-red paprika that is both deeply flavored and smoky.
Each type of pimentón has a subtly different flavor: sweet, bittersweet, and picante, or spicy. If you like to be creative with your cooking, this trio is a great way for you to try all three flavors!
Founded in 1913, La Dalia was the first company to produce the famous smoked paprika of La Vera. For generations, this family owned company has produced the finest quality pimentón using traditional production methods. This Pimentón de La Vera is Denominación de Origen (D.O.) - assuring its quality and authenticity!

"For some reason sweet is the best with seafood paella, but the picante was a "subliminal" undertone to my chicken and chorizo paella. Other US paprikas (even those that say smoked) are not in this league."
