An Essential Spice for Spanish Cooking
Item: SP-41 |
Ñora peppers are a small, round, intense and sweet-fleshed red pepper that is always used dry, to add flavor to stews, cocidos or soups. It may also be an ingredient in some chorizo sausages.
In Spanish cuisine they are much more commonly used than chili peppers. They lend a wonderfully earthy taste to many rice dishes, such as paella and arroz a banda, where they lend their distinctive flavor.
To prepare the ñoras remove their stems and seeds and soak in warm water about 15 minutes. Scrape off the interior flesh and discard the skins.
This shatterproof jar contains approximately 12 peppers, with a net weight of about 3.5 ounces.
