    Ingredients

    Organic Paprika.

    Paprika was first produced in Spain in the 16th century, after explorers brought peppers from the Americas. Today it is popular in many parts of the Americas and Europe.

    The spice ranges in color, aroma and flavor, depending upon where and from what type of pepper it is produced. Our Organic Paprika is grown in the highlands of Peru with a mild, earthy, sweet flavor with a bold red color.

    Paprika is a key ingredient in several iconic dishes of Central and Eastern Europe. Spanish "patatas bravas," or "spicy potatoes," are a traditional tapas dish made with a spicy paprika sauce. Paprika also provides the color and flavor for one of the national dishes of Hungary, "goulash," a flavorful meat stew.

    In the United States, paprika is often used as a garnish, sprinkled on top of dishes such as deviled eggs to impart color and subtle flavor. However, its flavor becomes more vibrant when gently heated in oil.
