Expert Tips

If you don’t have the frozen onions on hand, you can substitute 1/2 cup chopped onion.

Skim the fat from stews and soups with a spoon, or place a slice of bread on the top of the mixture for a short time to absorb the fat.

Essential to Hungarian cuisine, paprika is sweet red pepper ground to a powder. Ranging in color from orange-red to blood-red, the flavor of paprika can be mild, pungent or hot.
