About
Dr. Salunkhe

Paprika, and all peppers for that matter, are actually relatively new to Europe. Christopher Columbus brought peppers back to Spain from the New World just a few hundred years ago. In Spain, the seeds were distributed to the monasteries, who planted the peppers and taught their communities how to farm them.

The paprika season starts in February when farmers plant young paprika seedlings in rows. In September they get picked and brought over to the two-story smokehouses located on each farm. The lower level of the smokehouse an oak wood fire that burns for 24 hours a day. The peppers spend 2 weeks getting smoked over the gentle heat. The farmers know the peppers are completely dry by the crunch the peppers make when they're turned over.

The smell of the smokehouses wafts over fields of tobacco, the other major crop grown in Extramadura's fertile soil, filling the air with a fragrance reminiscent of a cigar bar filled with leather books... in the best way possible.
