Our ingredient of the week this week is most definitely smoked paprika. Regular paprika is often made by drying out peppers in the sun and then grinding them to a spicy powder. As you can imagine, the smoked variety are dried in smoke sheds to give them their delicious, distinctive flavour. All the better for tickling your family’s taste buds!
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
