Subtle Spice

Paprika is a sweetly aromatic spice made by grinding dried red-pepper pods; it's produced in Hungary, Spain, and California. Paprika's color ranges from bright red-orange to rusty brown and comes in different levels of heat. The most common type is mild "sweet" paprika; a Spanish smoked variety is also available.

Cooking with Paprika

Best known as a garnish for dips and deviled eggs, paprika also adds a deep, rich flavor and an appetizing color to spice rubs and stews like our Turkey Paprikash. Pick smoked paprika for heartiness and hot paprika for more heat. Find sweet (and sometimes smoked) paprika in the spice aisle; all varieties are sold in specialty markets. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
