Sweet Hungarian Paprika

4.9/5 from 24 Customers
Loading...

One of the most famous of Hungarian paprikas from the town of Szeged. The flavour is mild, incredibly sweet and delicate, more subtle than many Spanish paprika but also with a stunning bright red colour and no hint of the bitterness often tasted in lower quality paprikas. The fine powder is useful in many dishes, but as paprika only releases its flavour and true sweetness on heating, fry gently in oil before adding other ingredients. Be very careful not to brown the spice as it will become bitter!

I have always had great success with all the kits I have ordered and quickly realised that all the prep work should be done before starting to cook, otherwise cooking can be quite frenetic. This is a great way to try different foods of the world. As far as the spices are concerned, each one that I have received has been really fresh thus giving me really tasty food.

Great service - good website although the range wasn't as great as previously - no Harissa or your great Smokey Chilli Blend

I have been using the Spicery since it was a one man operation many years ago and have never had anything less than first class service. Their products are excellent and the delivery is very fast.

The Spicery has a highly informative, efficient website but they also provide a first class delivery service, with good packaging and a welcome free sample in addition to the purchase - a nice touch. The range of products is comprehensive and the website also gives very useful explanations of the spices, their quality and uses. What is most impressive is the inclusion of spices which are very difficult if not impossible to find in the high street or, indeed, in many specialist outlets.

I have always found your spices nice and fresh and the Urfa pepper is delicious but I was very sad that you discontinued the lovely blends which I used so many of, happily I have eventually after much searching, found another supplier for these.

I use paprika/ pimenton powder frequently but absolutely love the flakes - it has a much cleaner taste to my palate.
