Pure spice

The words of Olivier Roellinger

Vera Smoked Sweet Pepper is a very sweet, yet very fragrant pepper, with the lightly smoked flavour of "chorizo" sausage.
Smoked Sweet Pepper is cultivated and processed in the region of Vera, the country of the Conquistadors.

Story

Christopher Columbus was the first to bring this devilish spice back to his queen, Isabel the Catholic of Castile. Transported east by Magellan´s expedition, chili peppers had much more success in Asia than in Europe. So much in fact, that until the nineteenth century, it was widely held that chili originally came from the East Indies, and even today many people still think that capsicum is originally from India. Although the different species all come from Central America, there are now hundreds of cultivars. These can be found throughout the world and chili peppers have become a staple of the cuisines of hot countries, from Cayenne in French Guyana and Mexico, to southern China, Africa and the Caribbean.
