    IMHO the only black pepper worth bothering with is telicherry black.

    I ran across a recipe somewhere for bourbon smoke pepper that I will try at some point.

    Spices arrived! Ordered on Saturday and arrived on Wednesday and Thursday so far quicker than the 10 day delay on the site.

    They all smell amazing. The Spice Jungle sweet tastes a bit better than the Szegen but that's probably due to age. The smoked sweet has a very mlld smoked flavor to it. And you can see the difference in colors. The pic goes left to right : Szegen, SJ sweet, and SJ sweet and smoked

    I love the salts though. Huge flavor hit and taste great sprinkled on cookies.

    I was wondering … very few people in the US that are not of Hungarian descent know what chicken paprikash is. I make my grandmother’s recipe, which is sweet paprika plus cream and sour cream, rather than hot paprika.

    Since shipping was free, I added some Hungarian sweet paprika as well. It will all get used!

    IFindZeroBadCooks and ecowper , thanks for turning me on to Spice Jungle. I can already see that I'll be working the credit card on that site.

    Sounds like you're set for good paprika for a while. I'm going to take a look at the Spice Jungle site. Thanks for the tip!

    And it's good to know that smoky paprika works well in rubs. I've held back, not sure if the smoke flavor in the paprika would muddle the taste. And you're right, those Hungarian paprikas sure bring a great color to food as well.

    No, ecowper , there are no Hungarians that I know of in our family tree. I just like spicy food and Hungarian Hot Paprika has been a favorite ever since I started doing my own cooking in college. My mom never used any spice except salt and pepper, by and large, so it was fun to find a spice world out there when I left home.

    You're very welcome, and thank you for the compliment! I'm blushing.

    Enjoy that Spanish pimenton, should you happen get it from the Rancho Gordo site. But beware, their fresh dried beans (as opposed to the up to 2 year old ones most often found in grocery stores) can be addicting too.

    I am thinking ordering a mix of sizes for all three so I have enough regular peppercorns as needed then I can customize a few rubs with the new ones on a one-off basis and see how they do.

    I haven’t yet …. But now that you mention it!

    ecowper ever tried those peppercorns? I am thinking they would be pretty cool for pastrami , steak, or burgers.

    You’re absolutely welcome. I love Spice Jungle and find that their quality and price is excellent.

    And I always used Szeged as well, until I found Spice Jungle. I prefer their paprika, even if it isn’t actually authentic Hungarian. My mother went to Hungary a couple years ago and brought back some fantastic paprika, but it’s hard to find anything in the grocery stores here that is even close. Probably due to how long it sits in the warehouse, I suspect.

    Kathryn, your family wouldn’t happen to be Hungarian, would they? My mother is first generation American, father was born in a small village in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. Family name is Farkac
