I really enjoyed this recipe to add to my low glycemic load recipes. Note - I substituted the sugar with Splenda and since my family doesn't like things as spicy, I substituted the Cayenne pepper with Ancho chile pepper from the Spice House, which worked out really well. I recommend toasting the cumin seed before hand and grinding it yourself.

I would sub white sugar for brown sugar for an earthier flavor. A milder pepper or just use cilantro/Italian parsley as sub for cayenne.
