Why cook with paprika?

Together with salt and pepper, paprika is among the most commonly used spices worldwide. Its advantage is that, in addition to taste and aroma, it also adds an interesting color to dishes, depending on how much paprika you use. Paprika is most often added to meat dishes prepared not only from pork, but also from beef, chicken or chicken. But it also has its application in combination with sausages, cheeses or salty pastries.

A little history of peppers

Paprika as we know it is obtained from dried and ground pepper pods. The first mentions of the use of paprika come from Mexico around six and a half thousand years ago. The spread of paprika to other parts of the world did not occur until the discovery of America during the sixteenth century.

Paprika is not only sweet and hot

We most commonly encounter two types of paprika, sweet and hot or hot. But there is also a delicacy, goulash or smoked paprika. Last but not least, paprika, especially the sweet one, is also one of the basic ingredients of various pre-prepared spice mixes. Remember that pepper is not recommended to be added to hot oil, it may become bitter.
