Country of Origin: USA, Isreal
Production: Paprika is made from dried and ground varieties of Capsicum annuum peppers, mostly bell and chili peppers.
Qualities: Paprika is most commonly viewed as a culinary herb. The spiciness depends on the proportion of seed, rind, and fruit in the ground powder.
Common Use: The flavour of paprika is similar to that of sweet bell peppers, sometimes said to have a very mild citrusy undertone. The flavour of paprika can be enhanced by heating it briefly in oil. It is commonly used to season stews, soups, and meat and vegetable dishes, as well as a colourful garnish on potatoes and eggs.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
