Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Paprika is a chile pepper family of the genus Capsicum annuum. Hungarian Paprika is the preeminent spice used in Hungarian cooking, and in Turkey and Hungary it is often used on the kitchen table in the same manner that we use pepper. Paprika is the 4th most consumed spice in the world, and is a powder made from grinding the pods of various Capsicum annuum chiles. Depending on the variety of chile and how it's processed, the color may range from brown to a bright red, and the heat from mild to mildly spicy.
Hungarian paprika is made from peppers that are harvested and then sorted and ground to create different varieties. All Hungarian paprikas have some degree of rich, sweet red pepper flavor, but they range in pungency and heat.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
