OMG!!! Come to mama, baby! I threw this luckily found diamond all over my lentil hummus because I had to fight off the jalapeno avoid originally in the hummus. Know what happened? I sneezed caught on fire coughed and fell in love. But best of all the sleepiness caused by the jalapeno disappeared within 10 minutes and I shot down the street walking just as fresh as if I had just started my day! Can this be used in lemon water like one of those 'capsicum weight loss diet' metabolic enhancers? Cos I'm hispanic and now I'm about to go all out compliant mexican cuisine with this little gem unless I can shake it into my lemon beverages between meals!

No paprika is the hot ground pimento. The 2 versions are sweet and hot but for those allowed pimentos and red bell pepper this gem is safe to use someday I want to make a real texas turkey chili a d beans with it.

You could google Pride of Szeged Hungarian hot paprika or Spanish hot paprika to see if amazon, etc has it. These seem to be the 2 countries producing it.

So is Hungarian paprika usually the same as hot paprika? My local hfs store carries Hungarian, but it didn't say hot, so. I didn't buy it.

Paprika comes hot and sweet, I was thinking Hungarian is sweeter, and the Spanish is hotter. but I might have that backwards, and of course different companies might do special combo of peppers for their mixes. Battle dwarf knows her spices and she states which is which on one thread, so guess  you could look up her comments and find it. I love paprika both ways and usually get it in bulk at the Asian store in the big city. Paprika for me has much more taste than the common hot peppers, there more to them than heat. I really can understand Seraffa's love for them.

No; what I thought I was writing in the previous post was meant to communicate that both  hot and sweet are grown in hungary and spain. The box label will either state "paprika" or 'hot paprika' quite clearly

Maybe you or she have seen yet another country that grows it too.

Deblyn, as Seraffa so rightly says above, both Hungary and Spain produce both types of paprika.

I have several different types in the house here. I have s very smokey, deep burgundy coloured Spanish paprika that I like in my paella. It goes so well with the seafood, rice and saffron, and has a lovely smokey taste and slightly sweet/hot bite. I have a different Spanish type as well that's very hot. I also love my Hungarian hot praprika - it's stunning in Hungarian goulash or with chicken, or in my chicken tagine. One has to use it with caution as it's very intensely hot and has a more red hue that the smokey Spanish one.

I think paprika is awesome. Thanks for this thread Seraffa, as I haven't cooked using mine for a while - think I forgot they were there! To the kitchen!

Paprika is made from the cherry pepper or pimento. I just looked it up. So it is made from a chile pepper. If chile peppers are an avoid you should not use paprika - in Spanish pimento actually refers to bell pepper.

I think the jury could be out on this one, PVW, because here we can easily go back to the family of "red bell peppers" "pimentos" "chile powder" and "chiles" and notice a shift in scale in the capsicum family. The hottest chiles scientifically are "capsicum sp." Over in Type Base Food Values. Chile powder - tolerated by many, and non secretors it seems, happens to have chiles as one ingredient. Chile powder is not burning hot but a pungent "heat" yet is "capsicum spp."

Also from Wikipedia:
In ayurvedic medicine, C. annuum is classified as follows:[11]

    Gunna (properties) – ruksh (dry), laghu (light) and tikshan (sharp)
    Rasa dhatu (taste) – katu (pungent)
    Virya (potency) – ushan (hot)


Wikipedia  says that yes the cherry pepper did get introduced from the new world, but is known as ~capsicum annum~. It also says sweet peppers sprang up in Szeged in the 1920's "when a Szeged breeder found one plant that produced sweet fruit. This was grafted onto other plants." This definitely means the hot plants produced a strong mutation that was able to keep its dominant gene going separate from the traditional chiles, but what "other plants" he selected to graft on to, it does not say. (likely bell pepper plants?)

I do know that non secretors have the best ability to eat many capsicums, and "cayenne" appears on my SWAMI black dot list of hot enjoyables after a washout period, while "paprika" is perpetually in the beneficials column. For myself I'm not terribly fussed over the use of hot paprika as long as I see it is not having the same effect on me after 24 hours as a jalapeno chile does. When you eat a pot of chile with beans, eliminate later, there will be some pungency upon exit. The same happens with hot paprika, but never to discomfort (for me.) My standard is "do I feel like I need to call the Fire Dept. and do I feel my nerves/thinking/metabolic cycle have been negatively compromised after this meal."

Were the hot cherry peppers used for paprika "also"  grafted onto bell peppers (as their sweet mutation might have been) to further refine the spectrum of "paprika" now enjoyed, and provide more uniform crops?  -----

Possibly.....because the capsicum annum directly from the new world is the elongated skinny chile, while the other cultivars  are more in shape to slender bell peppers.

Anyway, I'm not a gardener, and that's just my 2 cents worth.

I agree - listen to your body - my point was just if you are supposed to avoid chili peppers, then you should probably avoid paprika.
