Cayenne is an essential addition to your spice cabinet if you enjoy spicy food. One of the easiest ways to add heat, it's a spice that works well with anything - just add more of this ground chili if you want more kick! Throw it in your seasoning blends or marinades to make them hotter too.
Use Cayenne anywhere you want to add heat. From rubs and meat marinades to stews, chilis, soups, dips, and Mexican or Asian cuisine. It can be added during cooking or sprinkled on the finished dish to cater to the particularly heat-loving pallette. Or add it to the batter before frying chicken or fish to give the resulting plate some kick. Cayenne becomes even more intense when combined with vinegar.
Pairs deliciously with:
Stewed Meats, Pizza, Beer Cheese Soup, Infused Cocktails, Chutneys
Origin & History
Grown in tropical and subtropical climates, the cayenne pepper gets its name from the city of Cayenne in French Guiana where its use was first documented. These bright red chilies are packed with heat and they can be used fresh from the plant, though they're more commonly dried and then powdered or flaked. The cayenne pepper is laden with vitamins, and its use has been chronicled in the history of Native Americans who have cultivated it and used it in medicines and food since prehistoric times.
