Sauces & Condiments
Sauces & Condiments from Spain
"Mojos Canarios" featured here are sauces made mainly from green or red bell peppers. They are traditional sauces used for cooking potato (patatas arrugadas) and meat or fish dishes on the islands. We also like to enjoy these as a spread on bread or sandwiches. In this category you will also find alioli (garlic-olive oil spread), sofrito and other tomato based sauces for all of your cooking needs.
Saffron from La Mancha, an exquisite aroma with a soft color. Each saffron flower has three stigmas. At every harvest each of these stigma are plucked from the flower and packed to be sold as saffron threads. You can tell saffron filaments are high quality when the threads are mostly red. Minimal traces of yellow should be seen on the stigma. Remember saffron is not intended to be used to add color to your rice or broth dishes but rather aroma. Our purveyors in Spain are reputable and what you are purchasing is real saffron at current market prices.
Sweet and hot Paprika from Murcia are wonderful to add taste and color to your dishes. Chorizo made with high quality pimentón from Murcia has a bright red color that does not die out quickly. Sweet, hot and agridulce Pimentón de La Vera add a lot of flavor to your dishes. All of the pimentón de la Vera is smoked.
In this category you will also find the ingredients to make some of the excellent sauce recipes found in culinary books from Spain such as pimientos choriceros, ñoras, dry hot guindilla peppers, and piparras (Basque green peppers in brine).
