Sweet and tangy piquillo peppers are traditionally grown in Lodosa, a small village in northern Spain. These ones from El Navarrico are fire roasted immediately after harvest, peeled by hand, and preserved in jars with their own juices.
Word from the Expert
I love piquillo peppers. They are smoky, roasted, and sweet, and are a great addition to a tortilla, a salad, or grilled vegetables. -Jamie Bissonnette, curator of the Spain Box
