The Espelette pepper originally hails from Mexico and was brought over to France in the 16th century, where it was initially used for medicinal purposes. Now native to the southeast region of France, Piment D'espelette or "French powdered chile," is essential to Basque and regional French cooking. Often rubbed into curing hams or whisked into soups and stews, this sweet, mild to medium heat pepper is said to have a flavor reminiscent of stone fruits due to its unique growing environment. The sweet and hot nature of the peppers adds a spice that complements Mediterranean cuisine. Substitute in any recipe calling for mild or medium chiles for a unique flavor. Add to soups and stews for rich flavor and heat.
