Description

Organic Smoked Paprika – makes amazing fajitas.

Organic Smoked Paprika adds a characteristic smokey depth to any stew or casserole.  The hot peppers are gently smoked to give them their flavour – then dried and ground into a powder.  The sweet and hot dried peppers used are a dense source of nutrition and add warmth without being as spicy as cayenne and chilli powders.  Peppers are one of the more heavily sprayed crops when it comes to pesticides so choosing organic is a good idea.

Smoked paprika is a national spice in Hungary and it is traditionally used in Goulash and Paprikash.  Heating smoked paprika unlocks its flavour and it goes well in a wide range of warming dishes. It also tastes great sprinkled dry over dips and side dishes for a smokey flavour sensation.

Take a look at the nutritional content of this wonderful spice and you will see a whole host of reasons to add it to your cooking.  Peppers are a rich source of nutrition so their dried powder boasts a wide range of nutrients in high levels, particularly B vitamins.

Family Tip:
