Every time I buy paprika, I end up disappointed. Whether at a grocery store or in a spice shop, it feels like an odorless red-brown powder. Finally, my search panned out. I brought a very fragrant seasoning back from my trip to Georgia, and with it — the recipe. My spice drawer now always features some homemade paprika.

Making the spice is easy — you only need one ingredient: bell pepper. Chop, dry, and grind up — and ta-dah, that’s the whole secret! You can store your homemade paprika for a very long time. Do, however, ensure that moisture and pests do not get to it. In a tightly closed jar, the spice will remain wonderfully aromatic for ages.

Steps

1
Done

Wash the bell peppers, cut them in half, and remove the pit, seeds, and white filaments. Cut into long thin slices or grate.

2
Done

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the peppers in a thin layer. For this amount, you will need about 3 trays.

3
Done

Preheat the oven to 175 °F. Place the baking trays in it for 4 hours, leaving the door ajar.

4
Done

Transfer the dried peppers to a blender bowl and grind to a powder.

5
Done

Transfer the homemade paprika to a container and tightly close the lid.

From this amount of bell pepper, you will get roughly 3 ounces (90 grams) of fragrant homemade paprika. Add it to vegetable dishes and soups for a subtle flavor and color or dilute some with a little water and rub the meat with the resulting paste.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
