 Paprika (Capsicum annuum) is a New World seasoning,  It is commonly found in powdered form, which is made by grinding dried, aromatic, sweet red peppers, usually the Tomato or Bell pepper. Most commercial brands come from California, Hungary, Spain, and South America. It is very popular ingredient in Hungarian recipes, and we also prefer to use the Hungarian Paprika, as the flavor seems to be the best.  See the nutritional chart below.  The actual size of paprika can be seen in the photo to the left.
