Smoked Paprika Syrup

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

I first discovered smoked paprika on a trip to New York back in 2000. My cousin put it in some spaghetti sauce and I was hooked. Thanks to canarygirl and Sackville Girl here at Zaar I was able to get a supply in to my kitchen. This recipe takes the amazing flavors one step further. The stuff is amazing on potato latkes!

This unusual syrup is sweet and smokey. It probably is best used with dishes that have a liquid base like spaghetti sauce or soup; instead of sprinkling on fish or meat. I made bean soup and used 3-tbsp in the pot. It rounded out the flavor and added slight smoke and (not too much) sweetness. If used in the appropriate recipe, this is a marvelous ingredient. The recipe makes a lot! Thanks Mirj. I like this recipe's uniqueness.
