SPICE SPOTLIGHT: Smoked Paprika & Spanish Paprika

We're excited to introduce you to the world of paprika and the difference between two of the most popular varieties - Spanish paprika and smoked paprika.

Spanish paprika, or pimentón, is a spice made by grinding dried peppers. It comes in three varieties:

  1. Dulce (sweet),

  2. Agridulce (bittersweet),

  3. Picante (spicy).

Spanish paprika has a bright red colour and a sweet, smoky flavour. It's used in Spanish cuisine to add depth and richness to dishes like paella, chorizo, and patatas bravas.

Smoked paprika, on the other hand, is made by smoking the peppers before grinding them. This gives the spice a more intense, smoky flavour and a deep red colour. It's used in barbecue rubs, marinades, stews, soups, and roasted vegetables.

At Sweet Jinger's, we offer both Spanish and smoked paprika in our product line.

Our Spanish paprika is made from the finest peppers, giving it that sweet, smoky flavour that's perfect for Spanish dishes.

Our smoked paprika is made from the highest-quality smoked peppers, perfect for adding a smoky flavour to your barbecue rubs or roasted vegetables.

Not only is paprika delicious, but it's also good for you!

Paprika contains a high concentration of antioxidants, which can help protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals. It's also a good source of vitamin E and iron.

Incorporating paprika into your cooking is easy. Try adding a pinch of Spanish paprika to your scrambled eggs or sprinkle some smoked paprika over your roasted sweet potatoes. You can also use paprika to make a flavorful rub for your chicken or steak. The possibilities are endless!
