Cayenne Pepper

Available in 30g ECO Pack

Suggested Uses

  • I recommend adding a little at the start of cooking and more to taste at the end if needed. You can always add more heat but you cannot take it out.
  • Ideal as a garnish due to its vibrant red colour.
  • Use in savoury baking to add colour and spice.
  • Use sparingly, add mid-way through the cooking process.
  • Use to add heat to curries, stews and casseroles, as well as sauces, pickles and chutneys.

From the chilli family, Cayenne adds an authentic pungent flavour and spicy kick to Mexican, Italian and Indian dishes.

The Variety

Cayenne Pepper is a cultivar of Capsicum annuum, named for the city of Cayenne in French Guiana.

For Your Appreciation

Cayenne Pepper does have its own capsicum flavour however it is generally used for its ability to add heat to a dish.

 

Additional Information

 
Health Benefits
  • By weight, cayenne is high in vitamins, however it is negligible given the small amount used.
  • Capsaicin dilates blood vessels which speeds up metabolism leading to weight loss, and facilitates oxygen and nutrient delivery to major organs.
  • Cayenne Pepper is commonly known to improve blood circulation and general circulatory health due to the compound Capsaicin that gives it its characterising heat.
