Paprika is a spice and universal seasoning, with a striking, crimson-red colour. Made from a combination of dried peppers in the Capsicum annum family, which also includes chili peppers, paprika tends to be milder than its spicy neighbours, with a thinner flesh. Once ground, paprika adds a subtle earthiness to your home cooked meals, with a sweet and peppery kick.
