I use the powdered variety. The name refers to to the town on the French side of Basque frontier with Spain up in the Pyrennes. I also have a small bottle of hot sauce (except that it isn't really that hot) made from the same pepper; pimenton d'Esplette. Very delicate flavor, not much heat.

Besides my not being able to type, I'll confess that I didn't notice that word "puree." But still, just add it in any time you feel an urge. I have a little jar of Piment d'Espelette jelly, and I'm mixing it in to any sauce I might have otherwise sprinkled. I'm also smearing a tiny bit on cheeses and smoke meat and fish. It's delicious!

But it's a paste, use it to add flavor like mustard?
