Capsicum annuum Paprika is made from certain very finely ground red pepper pods. This pepper is so tough that multiple grindings are necessary to get the right consistency. The color can vary from light bright orange red to dark deep red. The flavor varies from sweet and mild to pungent and hot. Mild paprika can be found in any well stocked supermarket, while ethnic stores will be necessary for a hotter more robust paprika. While these peppers grow in Spain, South America, California, and Hungary, the Hungarian variety is considered the finest. Indeed paprika has long been more of a staple in Hungary than just a spice.
