Origins of Paprika
Paprika spice is made from dried peppers of the Capsicum annuum plant that are ground into a fine, silky, deep-red powder. There are many different types, ranging in flavor profile from sweet and mild to smoky and hot. Native to the Americas and later Spain, Paprika is now cultivated throughout most of the world. The Spice Hunter Sweet Paprika is sourced from regions with cool growing seasons, where peppers grow sweeter than others due to the climate.
