paprika

You haven't had real paprika until you've had Szeged Hungarian Paprika. The stuff grown anywhere else just doesn't taste the same.

More of a bite than sweet paprika--use it sparingly or combined with Sweet Paprika.

Töltött káposzta, cabbage stuffed with meat and rice and served with a paprika sauce and sour cream. Exceedingly Hungarian! We also couldn't resist the smoked meat dumpling!

If using ground paprika in a roux (a mixture of flour and fat), or adding it to onions, first remove the pot from the heat. Do not return the pot to the heat until liquid has been added to the roux or the fat combined with any other ingredients that have a high water content, such as meat, potatoes, etc. This is essential, since paprika has a high sugar content and therefore burns easily. It then takes on an unsightly brown appearance and bitter flavor.
