Cayenne Red Pepper, Organic
In older Spice Trade definitions, when a pepper was unusually hot, it was given the name "cayenne" whether or not it actually was grown in the Cayenne region of South America. Also known as “hot red pepper,” cayenne is used not just for its heat, but also for its subtle enhancement of other flavors. This pepper will add zip to any dish. When a recipe calls for red pepper, this is what they are referring to. Be forewarned, it is still pretty HOT!
This spicy ground chili pepper, grown in India, is a nice substitute for conventionally grown cayenne pepper.
