    Paprika is a colorful red powder which is prepared from the fruits of specific varieties of peppers and is widely used as a spice. The plants are planted in early spring and the harvest takes place the summer and autumn. The fruits are dried out and pulverized to produce paprika. The paprika's taste varies from sweet to bitter. Paprika contains sugar Vitamin C compared to citrus. Capsaicin is responsible for the spicy taste, while the oleoresin is used as a pigment in various foods (among them the sausages). Paprika is used in the cuisine of many countries, but especially in the kitchens of Spain, Mexico and the Balkan Peninsula.
