Espelette pepper:

Espelette pepper is an agricultural product. It is a pepper grown in the Basque Country in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department. It takes its appellation of origin from the commune of Espelette. On the Scoville scale, Espelette pepper has a value of 4 and is no stronger than pepper.

It has been used for five centuries in place of black pepper in all Basque cuisine. It is therefore used to spice up dishes such as pike dumplings, roast doe, piperade, veal stew (axoa), basquaise chicken, ham, pâtés, etc.
