GF Food Find of the Week: Smoked Paprika
We've got a new spice favorite in our house: Smoked Paprika. Wow, this is a great new flavor for us and resides proudly on the dinner table between the salt and pepper chickens. I indulged in a bottle to use in a recipe I have yet to make, but in the meantime we've been sprinkling this smoky, earthy sweet pepper spice on lots of things: omelettes, baked and boiled potatoes, pasta, and salads.
Smoked Paprika is no mere red dust, like the plain old paprikas one uses to adorn deviled eggs and other pale edibles, but has a wonderfully rich taste. Don't be the last foodie on the planet (or is that me?) to investigate this delightful addition to the spice cabinet. I'd love to hear about other uses for my new favorite spice if others are as enamored as I am.
