Mezogazdaság - Beérett a fuszerpaprika Boldogon

Hungary is the Land of Paprika! This delicious spice is imported from Hungary from all over the world. Hungarian cuisine uses this spice in so many of their delicious dishes. Goulash (one of my favorites); sprinkled on fish, chicken, and vegetables; and even used for spiced cakes! You can never add too much Paprika to Hungarian food. 😋
