One of the six official Basque peppers of Spain.

 

(Also called Guernika or Gernika peppers)

 

While peppers are native to the Americas, they hold a special place in Basque cuisine. The plant, brought from the New World in the 16th century, quickly became essential, replacing black pepper as a key ingredient in the classic basque dish piperade.

 

Fruits are large and elongated, with tapering to a pointed end. Sweet flesh, has just a touch of heat. 

 

Traditionally used either fried lightly in oil, roasted when red in chorizo sausage and Biscaya Sauce or dried and ground into powder (paprika).

 

Sold in a 2.62" wide x 3.5" deep pot.
