Paprika chiles are somewhat larger and milder than most chile peppers, and these chiles are picked when they ripen and mature to a dark reddish color. Once ground, the color may vary from a bright red to rusty brown.
It's perfect for salad dressings, where it not only adds color but also works as an emulsifier when combining the oil and vinegar. Paprika is lovely with cheeses, chicken, duck, egg-based dishes, hors d'ouvres, marinades, rice, salads, smoked foods, vegetables, and cottage cheese.
When paired with other spices, it works well in combination with allspice, caraway, cardamom, garlic, ginger, oregano, parsley, pepper, rosemary, and turmeric.
Organic California Paprika is a sweet paprika, grown and harvested in California, also called Spanish Paprika.
