As with Champagne, only specific regions of France can claim the title of Piment D'espelette for this chile pepper. This chile pepper boasts a vibrant yellow-to-orange hue intermingled with touches of red, presenting an aesthetic appeal as alluring as its taste. Its flavor profile surpasses that of ordinary paprika, offering a more decadent, pronounced essence and a subtly smoky fruit aroma. On the Scoville scale, Piment d'Espelette ranges from a mild 1,000 to a moderate 9,000 SHU, making it a versatile ingredient for heat enthusiasts and those preferring milder spices. To maintain its optimum freshness and potency, we package it in 4-ounce, air-tight, resealable packages, safeguarding it against oxidation.
