I am very new to cooking and new to all kinds of spices. I find them are very interesting. There are a couple of recipes that I am interested in call for Paprika. I went to stores and found out there are a couple different kinds of paprika, what I can remember now is paprika and sweet paprika.
My question is that I don't want to buy all kinds of spices and all different kind of paprika due to budget. So as a beginner of cooking and backing, what are basic spices I should have on hand to start? Thanks a lot!!
