About paprika.......How To Store:
Store in a cool, dry, dark place away from heat, light and moisture. An ideal place would be a drawer or cupboard away from appliances. DO NOT STORE ABOVE THE STOVE. Will keep for 6 months to one year if stored properly. For longer storage, keep in refrigerator.
From what I've read, most will not have a problem with storage as paprika is a common ingredient in rubs and well, basically everything.
Personally, I find paprika tasteless to faintly mild for heat and sweetness. It's there mainly for colour.
