Paprika smoked on fragrant beech wood, from raw peppers grown in the world-renowned region around Szeged. The result is the finest paprika powder with an outstanding colour, a unique taste and a rich smoky aroma. Meanwhile its characteristically sweet flavor stems from the caramelization of the naturally occurring sugars during the careful drying and grinding process. This is paprika with character, and a pantry essential to brighten your meals.
This versatile spice, ubiquitous in Hungarian cuisine, makes the perfect addition to goulash soup, stuffed peppers as well as paprika potatoes. It also gives a delicious twist to your dishes, simply sprinkle over baked potatoes, roast meat or an omelette. Alternatively, why not try adding it to curries, stews and casseroles for a mouth-watering flavour infusion, or use it to make your own smoky barbecue sauce.
Paprika is extremely rich in Vitamin C, four times more so than lemons, and is also a good source of Vitamins A, B6 and E. It is also full of anti-oxidants and is a veritable nutritional-powerhouse of a spice.
In 2010 the European Commission approved the Protected Designation of Origin title for Szeged paprika. This means that all production and technological procedures ranging from seed production to grinding which are performed in the Szeged region are carried out under controlled conditions.
