Piperoktima Hot Spread 260g (9 oz)

Piperoktima is a delicious combination of roasted sweet and hot Florina peppers in a delicious spread made with extra virgin olive oil, salt, spices, vinegar, and walnuts. A single jar of this appetizing spread is made with 3kg of fresh peppers and is cooked for 3 hours, resulting in a deliciously rich spread. Enjoy the spread on its own as a dip or on our earthy rusks, or spooned over yogurt in a steaming baked potato, one of my favorite ways to serve it. You can also toss it with a hot bowl of our trahana, a bit of one of our single-origin olive oils and sea salt, and, voila, you’ve got a delicious meal ready to enjoy in minutes.

Florinas peppers are famous throughout Greece. Ranging from sweet to hot, they have a unique and delicious flavor. The Naoumidis family cultivates the famous red Florina Peppers on their farm in Agios Panteleimon Florina, at an altitude of 2,000 feet. They hand process and store their delicious pepper products in a beautiful stone cellar which links traditional architecture with modern technology. Central to their philosophy against hybridization is an obsession over the purity of their seeds, which they ensure by maintaining a proprietary seedbed at the farm.
