Introducing the Taste the World Club, a collaboration between the Scarsdale Public Library and Apiary at the Library.
Each month we will provide a small amount of a different spice or spice blend from a different part of the world.
Cook with the spice and join us for a Zoom discussion of what we each made. Participants will share tips, recipes and opinions of how their sampling the spices went.
For October, we’ll be cooking with Smoked Paprika. Smoked paprika is a Spanish cousin to the more widely used sweet Hungarian paprika. It’s made from pimiento peppers that have been dried and smoked over an oak fire, then ground into a fine powder.
You’ll sometimes see it called pimenton, smoked pimenton, sweet paprika, Spanish paprika, or any variation of those names, but you can always recognize this spice by its deep red color and powerful smoky aroma. Unless the packaging indicates otherwise, it’s not typically a hot spice – in actuality, the spice itself is quite mild and sweet. It is versatile and can be used to season vegetables, meats, grains, beans, and even sweets!
