Paprika

Paprika is a ground red spice derived from the flesh of a dried mild pepper. The intensity of both the color and flavor of paprika depend on the peppers used to make it. Most of the bright red paprika used today is the mild Spanish type, which is slightly sweet. This paprika, often used more for its color than flavor, gives French dressing its vibrant color.

Recipes

  1. Hungarian Paprika Chicken

    Hot Hungarian paprika adds a rich, robust flavor to this creamy chicken main-dish recipe.

  2. Chicken Paprika

    To add more flavor to this saucy favorite, we suggest Hungarian paprika . It comes in both hot and sweet versions.

  3. Pan-Fried Yukon Gold Potatoes with Paprika

    If you have smoked Spanish paprika (called pimenton), this is a great place to use it. Duck or goose fat is a delicious replacement for the olive oil. Use a pan large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer so they don't steam in their own moisture.

  3. Monday thru Friday Slow Cooker Meal Plan for the Fall

    Fri, 4 Oct 2013

    HAPPY CROCKTOBER!! In honor of the first Friday in Crocktober, I have put together another meal plan for you. I love the fall, and I of course LOVE Crocktober, but I am beyond relieved that this week is over. It was a doozy. next week will be better, though, because I'm going to stick to a game meal plan! (meatless) Monday: End of Summer Harvest Soup Tuesday: 20-40 Cove Garlic Chicken Wednesday: Autumn Sausage Casserole Thursday: Orange-Apricot Pork Chops Friday: Chicken Enchilada Chili Shopping List: (to print out just the list, use the PRINT button at the bottom of the post and delete any photos and extraneous text) PRODUCE: Apples (2 green or yellow) Carrots (1/2 cup chopped) Celery (2 stalks) Garlic (2-4 heads, up to 40 cloves) Onions (4 yellow) Tomatoes, baby (2 cups) Zuchinni (4 med) Yellow Crooked Neck Summer Squash (2 med) DAIRY: Parmesan Cheese (not a lot, for garnishing) Mozzarella or Cheddar Cheese (shredded, to add to Harvest Soup and Enchilada Chili) Sour Cream (1/2 cup or so for Chili) MEAT: 4 pounds chicken parts, or 1 roaster chicken 1 1/2 pounds additional chicken for Chili 6 pork chops 1 pound smoked chicken sausage (artichoke garlic or similar, I like Aidells brand) DRY GOODS: Pasta (1/2 cup, we use gluten free) Rice (3 cups already-cooked white or brown rice) Beans (dry white, 1/3 cup) CANNED: 2 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges Pasta sauce (1 jar; will need 1 cup) 2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with garlic 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth (for soup and for autumn casserole) 1 can enchilada sauce (will need 1 cup; read labels carefully for gluten) BAKING NEEDS: Brown Sugar (1/4 cup) Raisins (1/2 cup) 1 cup Apricot Jam SPICES: Paprika (2 tsp) Italian Seasoning (1 tablespoon) Chili Powder (2 tsp) Cumin (1 tsp) Parsley flakes (1 tablespoon) All Spice (1/2 tsp) Cinnamon (1 tsp) Ginger (1/4 tsp) Cloves (1/4 tsp) Pantry Staples: Olive Oil (1 tablespoon) Kosher Salt (2 tsp) Black Pepper (2 tsp) The Verdict: I know that this grocery list is a bit longer than the previous meal plan's -- but everything should be very easy to find in your regular grocery store and hopefully you already own a bunch of the spices! My eldest daughter turned 12 today. Which really can't be correct, because I am nowhere near old enough to have a 12-year-old. Five years ago I surprised her on her birthday with caramel apples . This year she has braces and can't have them, and has requested sushi for dinner. I'm pretty sure I can't find a way to make sushi in the crockpot... have a wonderful weekend! Happy Slow Cooking this Crocktober! . . . . Make sure to visit my store page for my books, recommended slow cookers, and other fun slow-cooking stuff. Thank you for your support! --steph
