Our Sweet Paprika from Spain is a must-have to add sweet, mild flavor to your dishes. All paprika is made from the ground skins and flesh of dried red peppers, but La Dalia is famous for producing the finest quality paprika. Considering its versatility and ability to add flavor and depth to any dish, paprika is definitely a spice that should be part of your seasoning rack. This sweet paprika is mild in taste, as opposed to smoked or hot paprika, but still has an impressive impact on any dish it is added to. It is also high in antioxidants, so it’s a nutritious spice to keep in your rotation.
All of the peppers used in La Dalia’s production of paprika are harvested by hand before being sent to smokehouses where they are dried in intense smoke for at least 15 days. They are then ground on traditional granite millstones, which is what sets La Dalia’s Spanish paprika apart from other generic paprika.
Paprika is one of the most common spices used in Spanish cuisine, but you are not limited to only using it when preparing Spanish dishes. A pinch or sprinkling can be added to all dishes: it’s great as part of a meat rub, seasoning for guacamole, potatoes, or used to enhance a dip.
La Dalia was the first company to produce the famous smoked paprika of La Vera after being founded back in 1913. For years, the family-run business continues to produce the finest quality paprika using traditional methods.
