Paprika is one of the most widely used spices around the world. A dried powder made from capsicums (bell peppers) or chilli peppers, it is commonly used in Hungarian, African, and Spanish cuisines for its colour and flavour and has made its way around the world as an everyday ingredient.
The most important thing when choosing paprika is to think about how you’re going to use it in a recipe and the flavour you want to create. Just need a punch of colour? Use regular or sweet. Want a little spice? Grab the hot stuff. Going for an earthy flavour? Try smoked paprika. If you have several on hand, blend them together to achieve just the right mix.
