Spice & Co. Smoked Paprika is sourced from Spain and is a naturally smoked product with a woody sweet taste. Smoked Paprika is made by drying ripened peppers (capsicum) in smokehouses fuelled with slow-burning oak wood. The smoke enhances the flavour by caramelizing the naturally present sugars. The peppers are milled to a fine powder and used to add colour/flavour to dishes. Chefs tip - as with saffron, a little goes a long way and can easily dominate a dish so less is more!
