Re: Do You Have a Favorite Kind of Paprika?

My favorite spices are from The Spice House.    Wish I could remember the poster on the boards who recommended.

@Desertdi  My DH used to work for the USDA, and there was an actual standard for how many ppm of bug parts in the paprika. That was 45 years ago, so I don't know if it is still the case.

Paprika is my fave!!! I love smoked paprika--don't have a brand I like---usually get it in bulk so I don't have to pay as much for the already jarred stuff.

I only use/like smoked paprika. I honestly only use paprika for color. I never taste it at all.

@PA Mom-mom 

 

If you think that's a crazy question, I have an even crazier answer.

 

Awhile back, did a Penzey's order and asked DH if he needed anything.  (He does most of the cooking.)

 

He said paprika, and I described the four they offered (CA sweet, Hungarian sweet, Hungarian half-sharp, and smoked Spanish).

 

He said "Order a small bottle of each", as he wanted to taste/smell the differences.

 

So far, we both like the Smoked Spanish the best.

 

We now have paprika for life.

Hungarian sweet paprika by Szegeo.


This is what I use as well,along with the hot paprika. Store bought brands have no flavor. 


 

I use this brand as well.  I won't use anything else.  It's just sweet enough and has a wonderful flavor and aroma.  Love it, especially for  Bohemian Chicken Paprikash.

Re: Do You Have a Favorite Kind of Paprika?

I guess I've never used paprika as a spice.  My grandmother and mother used it as a garnish on potato salad and other plain food, so that's what I do.
