  • What is strong paprika?

    Paprika is a vegetable but also the name of a spice made from sweet pepper or pepper (Capsicum annuum). These two vegetables come from the Solonaceae family, just like tomatoes, eggplants... Less spicy than chilli powder, hot paprika has a better taste than classic paprika. Its aromas are similar to those of dried tomatoes.

    The flowers of the peppers are white with 6 or 8 petals. Their pollen is irritating

    The paprika harvest

    Paprika is the fruit of Capsicum annuum. It is harvested ripe before being dried. Once dry, it is ground to a fine powder: paprika powder.

    In Europe, paprika is increasingly grown in greenhouses.

    Did you know that? In paprika, it is the seeds that bring a spicy taste. The varieties of paprika (strong or sweet) differ depending on whether you have crushed, the fruit, the seeds or the tail.

    David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to offer you this strong paprika powder for its exceptional taste qualities. To sprinkle on your dishes, it brings a slightly smoky taste and a moderate spiciness to your recipes.
