Made with flavorful peppers from Hungary, ground smoked paprika is perfect for adding rich, smoky pepper flavor and red colour to many dishes, without adding heat.
The pepper plants from which paprika is made originated in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Antilles. The plants were taken back to Europe with European explorers and traders, and cultivation eventually became widespread in the Old World, even becoming the national spice of Hungary. Smoked paprika is made from peppers that have been sun dried and then smoked over oak fires. To read more about paprika's history and varieties, and to find recipe ideas, visit the En-spice-lopedia!
