házi készítésű csípős paprikakrém – homemade hot spicy paprika sauce


It is is made from coarsely minced paprika, hot paprika, garlic and salt; containing nothing more perishable. When it is opened, it can be stored for a year in a refrigerator. We Hungarians use it for example in Lecsó, paprikás csirke and soups like halászlé (fisherman’s soup), gulyás or in any everyday soup giving them a hot paprika flavour. Check out my family’s recipe:::

Pulp/mince 2 kg red paprika, add 0,3 liter oil, 0,3 liter vinegar, 0,05 kg salt, 0,15 kg sugar, 1/2 bag of minced black pepper bag, 10-15 or less small chili peppers, 3-8 cloves of garlic, 3 bay leaves. Cook it on mild temperature for an hour, then add 4 small cans of tomato purée and cook the mixture for 20 more minutes.
When it is done, pour the sauce into small jars/bottles, close them, place them into a large pot with water, place a wet tea-cloth on the top of them and cook them for 5-12 minutes… or use your own method of potting.
