Event though most of have a conainer of paprika sitting way back far in the spice cabinet, waiting to be pulled out only on those rare occasions when you make deviled eggs…kike once or twice a year…paprika is a spice that has way more to offer than we give it credit for.
But what exactly is paprika?
Paprika actually ripened and dried bell peppers that have been ground into a powder…(gee, that might explain why this blog about paprika has been stuck in with my other posts on bell peppers—such as this one.
There are actually several different types of paprika—all dependent on which pepper or combination of peppers has been used to make it.
And the different types of paprika can range in spiciness from mild to hot.
