Piment d'Ville Bulk Pack
*3 oz now available in Smoky & Spicy!*
Piment d’Ville is our flagship spice. The love of our life. Our California-grown Basque red chile. Grown from the seeds of Piment d’Espelette from the Basque region in France, this chile powder is a little sweet and a little spicy. It’s the kind of spice that adds deep background notes to your food and a peppery finish. This Piment d'Ville was harvested in fall of 2019.
Our bulk sizes are great for folks who know and love Piment d’Ville and use it on the regular. It also offers a bit of cost savings for buying in bulk. The package is harvest dated so you can feel confident about the spices you use and what fall it was harvested. We recommend keeping the product out of direct sunlight, away from the heat of the oven, and in an airtight container in order for it to retain its bright red color and flavor.
Piment d’Ville adds rich flavors to dishes when used while you are cooking to season things like onions while they are sautéing, veggies before getting roasted, or meats before they get cooked. It can also add a beautiful red-orange color to your foods in the cooking process. Piment d’Ville is a perfect garnish, adding a hit of bright color and a little heat.
In the Basque region, it is used just like black pepper, finding its way with salt into most savory dishes. With that in mind, don’t be scared to use more than a pinch. It’s a pepper to use liberally, not one to think of as precious.
