Think of paprika as the gentler, sweeter cousin of hot chili peppers. It enlivens your favorite dishes with fruity notes and a toasty red color without ever taking over the show.
McCormick sources whole paprika pepper pods from farmers in warm, dry climates.
The peppers are grown specifically for McCormick and can be traced back to the individual fields from which they are harvested. That’s the best way to control quality, color and heat levels. They are then gently dried, often under the sun, and carefully ground to maintain consistent sweet flavor and that vivid red color.
