    The first jar is hungarian sweet paprika and the second jar is smoked hungarian paprika. And yes, we grow them every year. We added hot hungarian paprika last season. Can't live/cook without paprika!!!

    Congratulations on being named Farmer of the Day! Love the photos! I'm a big fan of peppers and homemade spicy powders.

    I have one that my kids have named "PH" which they tell me stands for 'Powdered Hell.'
