I think caraway is a German additive. It's used in a lot of recipes in the Black Forest along with juniper berries.

In the spice aisle, look towards the bottom for the "orphan" spices. There are tins there of odds and ends, imported tins of Hungarian paprika can be found there and they really are not too expensive.

Could be. I got my recipe from Wolfgang Puck, who is Austrian.

How do I know I'm not just buying the kind of paprika that old Hungarian ladies sprinkle on salads?

Any suggestions for a specific brand that I could find in a supermarket?

Our local grocery carries Pride of Szeged paprika. I ain't got a clue if it a good brand, but it's the only brand I have seen in these parts.

Thanks Hoot, I've seen that one, should I get sweet or hot?

In my mouth, it's just spicy, but Mrs Hoot says my taste buds are burnt out.

I think I saw on a "How it's made" episode where they said the only spice stick pepperoni is flavored with is paprika. I imagine that's the hot stuff.
When I made this I used Penzey's Hungarian paprika. I know it wasn't the hot. And the dish wasn't spicy, just tasted of paprika in a good way.
