Our incredibly bright Paprika is semi sweet with spicy notes at the back. We chose to grow the Boldog Pepper for its well balanced bittersweet flavor and complex kick. The Boldog varietal is grown from seeds originating from the village it was named after in Hungary. Grown on an organic family farm in Southern California, these rich peppers are sun ripened on the vine and dried whole at a low temp to concentrate & preserve the flavor. We grind the whole peppers in micro batches to ensure maximum freshness in each jar. This is the paprika of choice for everyday cooking and when a dish needs seriously bright red color.
We recommend storing the paprika in the refrigerator to maintain freshness. Convivial does not use any additives or anti caking agents to the Paprika, as a result the powder may naturally clump together from any moisture. A vigorous shake of the closed jar should break up any clusters.
Paprika’s true depth of flavor is released when heated in a moist environment such as hot oil. However, Paprika powder does burn quickly so do not let it cook for more than a few seconds in hot oil before adding something water based.
