We got to pick up a package from the post office today and it was a delivery from our paprika dealer overseas. Can't believe I can't find any of that good shit here and believe me I've tried. Even gone out of town on quests to find it.

Thanks Bohica! It was much appreciated and also tasty, Can't wait to cook with it!  yay.gif hug.gif

yay.gif Woo hoo, thank you Bohica!
This guy is so good, I mentioned we have a hard time getting celery salt just as an example as to how difficult it is for us to get certain spices, and he sent us a bottle! thumbsup.gif
We can finally make Strigoi's mititei recipe as intended. chuckle.gif

It's neither, we get smoked and sweet, we just can't find the hot Hungarian variety locally.

My pleasure.
I think it cost 3x more to mail than to get the stuff, which is on every supermarket shelf here.
I saw some today for $4.00, quite a bit less than Amazon.
I did ask the postal clerk if there was a less-expensive way to send it, because I used one of the post office supplied boxes, and found out that there is, if I box and wrap it myself.
Let me know if there is something else that's unavailable, shipping stuff like this is way safer than running guns.

I was in Hungary many years back and the food was AMAZING!! Tried to order Paprikás Csirke (Chicken Paprikash) at many restaurants as it was on basically all the menus, but they all said they didn't have it  damned.gif  Finally got to order some on a train and I enjoyed it, but still find it mysterious why it was off the menu at so many places... hmm.gif

No tar flavored dinners though, we're making Matiti (Romanian sausages) and I'd like to have a Parsnip mash with that.

Hot paprika isn't available there? You must have my Hungarian recipe, the Romanian version has Savory (cimbru) and 3 times the fresh garlic. I've noticed English recipes have mistranslated cimbru as oregano or thyme but it's savory and used in a many Romanian recipes. Often a 1/4 tsp of coriander and 1/4 tsp. of cumin, plus 1/2 tsp of allspice is added to the mici depending upon the traditional family recipes. The Hungarian version has thyme and caraway as opposed to Savory. Hope that confused everyone.  chuckle.gif

We don't like allspice that much, but love thyme and caraway seeds hyper.gif

Interesting facts about caraway seeds:
Quote:Finland supplies about 28% (2011) of the world's caraway production.[12] Caraway cultivation is well suited to the Finnish climate and latitudes, which ensure long hours of sunlight in the summer. This results in fruits that contain higher levels of essential oils than those produced in other main growing areas which include Canada, the Netherlands, Egypt, and central Europe.


In case any of you need caraway seeds...

Here's the Hungarian version with UK measurements. UK and US tsp, tbsp etc are slightly different but it's negligible.

1 kilo (about 2 pounds) ground beef, lamb, or pork or a combination in any ratio.
2 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. water
6 or more (according to taste) garlic cloves,crushed
2 tsp. bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. crushed hot red pepper
1/2 tsp hot paprika
2 tsp. caraway seeds
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

Great with hot mustard and beer :)

I just planted 51 German White Stiffneck Garlic in my primary backyard.
Last week I planted 66 Montana Zemo in my upstate location.

I prefer the "hardneck " variety, as I can plant in the fall and harvest in mid-July.

I believe it was team uzi who stated a preference for the porcelain varieties, and that's all I usually plant.

I use raised beds and mulch with shredded leaves, just like Octo.
