I purchased two containers of Red Paprika, one for us and one to share with two other foodies, one couple has lived most of their lives in India and is familiar with Indian spices. All six of us (three couples) consider your red paprika to be the best we have ever tried. At a recent dinner, the restaurant manager commented that she doesn't often see one of their tables displaying a pepper mill (RT peppercorns), a shaker (RT red paprika), and a salt shaker (Alaea salt). I asked for her hand and sprinkled in a bit of the red paprika. She exclaimed, "Wow, that is really good!"
She returned with a container for more paprika.
We really enjoyed the paprika you sent. We first used it on our homemade chicken salad and it came to life with a smoky earthy flavor and a little bite. We used it next on a small piece of pork loin, which would ordinarily would be a bland dish. The ground chilies really woke it up and it turned out to be a very good meal. Another aspect that I love about this spice is that it can be used to spice individual portions. My wife doesn't like things as spicy as I do so we can each satisfy our individual tastes.
This paprika is amazing!! I made a red lentil soup and used this paprika instead of the sweet paprika the recipe called for and it added so much character and depth, not to mention a little heat. Took this recipe from good to great.
Please get more of this! I recently used it to make a sweet potato chili and the flavor is out of this world. Because of this, paprika is now one of my favorite spices. I don't want to run out!
Couldn't ask for a better product excellent ,excellent, excellent.
