Paprika podwer is red and with special taste. It is used for seasoning a lot of dishes; it is a product obtained by grinding dry pepper. So today we are going to learn about its properties and utilities.

Sabater Spices ‘forgets’ about paprika for one day

Sabater Spices’ employees decided that it would be a great idea to spend a day together out of the office and forgetting our daily routine… certainly, taking advantage of the good weather of the Region, last Saturday 24th of November we drove to Portmán’s bay, in La Unión, to spend a great sunny day close to nature. We walked by Ceniza’s mountain, where we could enjoy dense vegetation. Once at the top we viewed the huge cannons and the wonderful bay’s landscape.

When we finished our route, we enjoyed  a delicious ‘caldero’, such a typical meal in our region, and, that way, we completed that sunny day with the best possible company.
