Piquillo Peppers | Jar
Exquisite Piquillo peppers, one of Spain’s most iconic products, as well as one of El Navarrico’s pièce de résistance. The pepper used is the Pimiento del Piquillo de Lodosa, one of the most coveted vegetables grown in Navarre’s fields. An annual herbaceous plant, whose seeds are typically sowed in spring and harvested in early October. The work is done exclusively by hand, with intervals of about a week on average.
As per the PDO guidelines, Piquillo peppers are peeled one by one without soaking them in water, allowing for all their natural characteristics to be preserved. The peeling and seed removal processes are also meticulously done by hand by El Navarrico’s expert workers: an exquisite product best consumed at room temperature, for a genuine, freshly picked taste and flavor. Everything takes place in the town of San Adriàn, in the southwestern part of the Community of Navarre: we are in the Ribera Alta “comarca”, on the bank of the Ebro River.
A perfect microclimate, thanks to mild temperatures and quite famous for the cultivation of various products, as well as for the production of many fine wines. A 10,000-square-meter plant where fruits and vegetables are processed exclusively during the harvest season, paying close attention to the seasonality of the products and helping to keep the local economic fabric alive by cooperating only with farms in the Navarre region.
El Navarrico’s technology is thus placed at the disposal of local producers relying exclusively on traditional agricultural techniques, while at the same time applying innovative approaches in quality control systems, product preservation and respect for the organoleptic properties of the raw materials used. A gourmet preserve where the color and flavor of the fruits, vegetables or legumes are unique, as if they have just been picked!
In the mid-1950s Amalia Herce and Josè Salced began producing the first canned tomatoes in the cellar of the family home. From those early years to today much has changed: the company processes more than 50 different products, yet always making sure to maintain the spirit of the old family business unchanged.
