Production & Sourcing
Drying Peppers: Fresh sweet peppers are harvested and cleaned. They are then dried using methods like sun drying or low-temperature drying. This reduces their moisture content and prepares them for the smoking process.
Smoking: The dried peppers are placed in a smoker, which is a controlled environment where smoke is introduced. The peppers are exposed to smoke generated from wood chips or other aromatic materials. The smoke infuses the peppers with a rich smoky aroma and flavor.
Aging: In some traditional methods, smoked peppers are allowed to age for a period of time. This can further develop the smoky flavor and enhance the overall profile of the smoked paprika.
Grinding: The smoked and dried peppers are then ground into a fine powder using grinding equipment. This creates the characteristic texture of smoked paprika powder.
