What is smoked paprika powder?
Smoked paprika powder is a typical Spanish spice. During production, the peppers are smoked under oak wood for 1-2 weeks. Then the peppers are completely dried and ground very finely in several grinding stages. This is how it acquires its smoky and intensely spicy flavour. It is therefore also perfect for a summer barbecue, as the bitter-sweet note of the paprika with the spiciness and smoky aroma of the oak wood harmonises perfectly with grilled cheese, potatoes, tofu, vegetables or meat.
Three variations of paprika powder
To cover all tastes, our fine paprika powder is available in three different varieties: Smoked paprika powder, sweet paprika powder and, last but not least, hot paprika powder. Besides Hungarian paprika powder, Spanish paprika powder is also famous and very popular, and not without reason. The Spanish themselves call their paprika powder “Pimenton de la Vera” and it is made from ripe red peppers, is fruity and aromatic and tastes great with all kinds of dishes.
How do you make paprika powder?
The peppers from organic farming are harvested, air-dried and then gently finely ground. Only the red flesh of the pepper is used. Both the seeds and the stalk are removed.
What is paprika powder used for?
Paprika can be used generously both for cooking and for seasoning. Only when frying in oil in a pan should caution be exercised. In this case, paprika powder can develop a bitter taste due to the high heat. Otherwise, it is very versatile in the kitchen. This means that it is often used for both cold and hot dishes. It is also often used to colour dishes. For example, to give dipping sauces a strong red colour.
In our opinion, it goes best with the following dishes: Sauces, potatoes, chips, rubs, meat, vegetables but also fish and marinades or in spreads.
