Like Beth, when we visited Hungary I bought pouches of both hot and sweet paprika from a vendor. The cloth pouches had a cute drawing of a girl in costume and had a little wooden spoon inside. They made great gifts for my cooking friends and I kept several for myself. I was on a mission for making the best Goulash and Chicken Paprikash, and I have a recipe posted here for the Chicken Paprikash that's very good. I like a combination of two parts sweet and one part hot.
Now I've run out of the paprika I brought there and I think it was superior to what I now have to use. Just be sure to buy authentic Hungarian paprika Larry.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I saw a program on TV a couple of years ago which was about a Hungarian paprika maker. They made 4 different pepper blends, ranging from sweet to very hot. I don't remember the manufacturer's name or much else except the four distinct blends.

Which Paprika for a Hungarian Goulash 'like', recipe?? When younger, my grandmother (whose parents were from Hungary). would make Hungarian Goulash. She always served it over egg noodles, and with a pickle on the side ( usually Ba-tampte). She wasn't the greatest cook, but this recipe she nailed. She has since passed away, with no written records of her recipe. Being that she has a Hungarian Background, I assume she used Hungarian Paprika in her recipe. I went to the Penzy's web page and there were at least 2 Hungarian Paprika's listed ( Half sharp , and sweet(. Any clue which would be more appropriate for such a recipe, or is just a matter of taste? Just curious Since Im vegetarian now, I won't try and recreate her recipe ( especially cause I remember most of the flavor was from the meat itself), But I may try to whip up something with a similar taste profile, so i was just curious as to the Paprika she may have used. Thanks, larry [url]https://www.penzeys.com/search/#?q=paprika[/url] PS: IF there is another link to other, more appropriate, options, feel free to point me in the right direction 3 stars 1 reviews
