Basque Country has a rich culinary heritage distinct from French and Spanish cuisine, and often its recipes are enhanced with spicy and peppery flavors that surprise the palate. Basque Sausage au Piment d'Espelette is one such recipe. The ground pork in each sausage is infused with AOC Piment d'Espelette or Espelette Powder, a chili pepper powder considered the cornerstone of Basque cooking. While this pepper has a fiery-red color that it imparts to the sausage, it is actually mild in spiciness, offering just enough heat to enliven the senses without fully incinerating them!
This sausage also contains roasted red bell pepper, black pepper, and spices such as nutmeg, coriander and caraway, all of which contribute to the complex flavor dimension of Basque-style Sausage. Held together in a natural lamb casing, each sausage is artisan made in the true Basque style, yet was prepared right here on our shores in the USA, so you get the best of both worlds: authentic tradition with utmost freshness.
