Canary Island food - use of Paprika
Sat, 06/28/08 5:21 PM
Paprika is a New World product, i.e., the powder of a sweet red (sometimes green) pepper.
The Canary Islands are part of Spain.
Columbus sailed for the Spanish Crown and returned to Europe from an early trip to the New World with peppers, including paprika.
How quickly did various traditional Spanish recipes adopt paprika as an ingredient, and especially the food of the Cannary Islands?
I'm interested in dates and not just Spanish recipes that use paprika.
