One thing I brought back from my trip to Hungary is a large stock of Paprika. I have never seen a country so proud of a spice. But if I am honest they are right, first because the taste is very yami, second because it is a very powerful spice as it is very good for your health: rich in vitamins A and E, in iron, and potassium, it reduces the risks of stroke and heart attack, and promote healthy sleep.
