Background

Cooking

  • Paprika is one of the greatest spices for any home chef. It adds a mild spiciness and color to a dish without being overbearing. Our paprika is the traditional paprika, i.e. it is not smoked and it is not Spanish paprika. 

Cultural​

  • Against all conventional wisdom, it was only widely adopted in Hungary in the 19th century leading to the world- famous chicken paprikash and beef goulash. It is funny how today's dishes and cooking styles are associated with the culture of a country and one assumes that Hungarian culture included Paprika for centuries. Hungarian Goulash (Paprikasch) is probably the Hungarian national dish and every mother has a different recipe.

​Spiritual

Medicinal​

  • According to conventional wisdom, Paprika helps with indigestion, cardiovascular health, and circulation; is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory; and contains vitamins A, E, K, and C. Lots of additional information here - https://draxe.com/paprika/
