Paprika - California Sweet (ounce)
Christopher Columbus introduced these particular Capsicum annuum chiles to Spain when he returned from his second voyage and presented paprika to the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella who had sanctioned his voyages. The king and queen found these chiles a bit too spicy hot for their liking and passed them on to the monks at the Guadalupe monastery, who in turn shared them with other monasteries throughout Spain and Portugal.
This domestic Paprika is perfect when you want to add some red color and a bit of pungent sweetness to any recipe. Good with cheeses, chicken, duck, egg dishes, hors d'ouvres, rice, salads, smoked foods, vegetables and cottage cheese. Works great in salad dressings, where it not only adds some color but it also works as an emulsifier (combining the oil and vinegar). Paprika works well in combination with allspice, caraway, cardamom, garlic, ginger, oregano, parsley, pepper, rosemary and turmeric.
Contains less than 2% silicon dioxide (anti-caking agent) and ethoxyquin (an anti-oxidant).
