Do we really think about spices? We probably don’t pay them enough attention. We should, because flavor is everything. You do enjoy the food you shovel into your mouth, no? Let’s step-up our game and savor the foods we devour.
We’d like to introduce you to: Paprika.
Pereg is a leading producer of all-natural spices from around the world. In-house spice expert, Joy, says this about paprika:
“It’s a must for everyone’s spice cabinet.”
To. The. Point. We’re trying to ignore that she lives life by a single name and that it happens to by “Joy” and isn’t that cute and stuff…
Anywho, paprika is the world’s fourth-most consumed spice. You may be thinking, “Yeah. It’s that red stuff on the deviled eggs.” Yes, it is. But paprika sneaks its way into Mexican rice, Hungarian goulash, Italian sausages, and variety of marinades, rubs, stews, chilis, and other cuisines.
And, paprika has multi-personalities: sweet, smoked, hot, Hungarian, Spanish… kind of like dating a different girl each night. Again, we digress.
So, live out a tastebud fantasy with paprika.
Here’s one to try.
