Cayenne not only offers heat but also subtly enhances other flavors, and it was popular in early American cooking for this quality. In older spice trade definitions, any pepper that was hotter-than-hot was called "cayenne," after an area of South America which once exported super-hot peppers. This pepper will zip up any dish. When a recipe calls for red pepper, this is the pepper it means.
