Paprika can truly go on anything – but when you reach for paprika for a meal, do you go for spiced? Sweet? Smoked? It all depends on your flavor palette. Let’s take a quick look at what exactly sweet smoked paprika is.
The differences in types of paprika are based off of which peppers were ground up to make the paprika – that is what creates the flavor. Sweet smoked paprika can be made from both hot and sweet pepper varieties. The only difference? They are smoked over an oak fire. You can use sweet smoked paprika to add a smokey flavor to dishes without actually smoking them.
Sweet smoked paprika contains capsaicin, which is a compound found in peppers that have a very wide range of health benefits. Paprika is also packed full of nutrients, antioxidants, and it acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Reap the incredible health benefits of sweet smoked paprika by adding it to stews, meats, Hungarian dishes like goulash, and of course – deviled eggs!
