"Vibrant exciting colour with a full aroma of smoked paprika. Lovely fruity flavour with clear clean smoky taste. Once the warm smoke has gone you are left with very pleasant paprika on the finish. This is a very pure ingredient which would add character to a wide range of dishes. Clever, sound and versatile."
