Was making dinner and thought I should share one of my favorite spices… Paprika! I think it was 5-6 years ago when was going through a rough patch when I discovered this meaning - uses behind this spice. I did a quick google search h and found the link below.
Hope you guys enjoy.
Thanks. That Paprika is coming out of the kitchen cupboard lol
Your more than welcome , and that’s awesome @TheMuslimWitch , lol it’s honestly one of my favorite spices.
I didn’t use paprika much at all before I visited Hungary and became more aware of it. Then I came to Poland and saw that they add it to so many dishes here too!
I’ve started putting it just about anything savory. I’m a big spice baby and can’t have anything too spicy, so this gentle and almost sweet flavor is perfect for adding a bit of gentle heat to food (or to spells )
Thank you for sharing your wisdom and findings about paprika, @Francessca- it really is a wonderful ingredient!
Huh I’ve honestly never thought about using paprika in my witchcraft. Thanks!
As a child, I thought Paprika was put on deviled eggs to make them pretty.
As an adult, the uses are amazing! Thanks for more information.
Your super welcome @TheTravelWitch_Bry ! It was one of those moments while standing at my stove where I was like “I should share this.”
I enjoy adding it to my chicken drums (along other dishes) , I can also empathize not being able to do too much heat, haha, I think this is why I like Paprika so much.
It’s s super neat that you’ve been able to see the uses of this spice in a couple of countries / become more aware of it due to how it’s being used.
Super welcome @MeganB, it will be interesting to see how you end up using
super welcome @Garnet .
It is a pretty color, and lol for all we know the person who invented deviled eggs might of know of the many uses of the spice
Cheers to that! And ohhh I bet it’s delicious on chicken drumsticks- sounds tasty!
@Francessca My husband makes the BEST fried potatoes every Sunday morning and he uses the bacon grease then puts garlic, onions and smoked paprika in the potato’s and they are the yummiest potato’s EVER! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
As far as witchcraft, I use it in my spells occasionally but the uses I’ve found aren’t something I require too much in my work, however the energy work area it could be helpful, but I haven’t noticed any remarkable changes or effects - I’ll have to give it another go, thanks!
Light and love, Jan
Have you ever added cinnamon or nutmeg to tomato-based sauces? It kicks up the flavor. You can also add cinnamon to coffee.
So sorry it’s taken me forever to get back to you @jan_TheGreenWitch, the end of my week and into my weekend got hectic.
These sound delicious ! I could definitely see why everyone would love them. When we make bacon we save the fat as well; personally I like cooking my eggs in it or putting it on the outside of a potato and baking it.
Neat regarding the spell work! Sometimes when I’m cooking with paprika I’ll put a purpose behind it, generally I’ll do this when I feel like there is something negative floating around my husband and me, and I want to push out negativity - add a layer or protection.
Only the best !
Thank you for suggesting the nutmeg and cinnamon @Garnet , I made a sauce on Sunday and added a little of both. Most definitely added a neat kick to the sauce.
Only the best,
