Inspired by a meeting with an Espelette chilli grower, 2008
The Espelette Chili has benefitted from a French appellation d’origine controllée or verified designation of origin (exactly like Champagne or Camembert) since June 1, 2000, which was thereafter strengthened into an origine protégée or protected designation of origin on August 22, 2002. It is produced in only ten communities and is handpicked every August. In the fall, homes in these communities are all decorated with braided strands of Espelette chilis. This salted butter perfectly gives off the unmistakable aroma of this flavorful chili.
Note: This product is sold up to 3 days before expiry.
