Native to the Caribbean, the cayenne pepper is a tropical fruit. It is now also grown in Africa, China, India, Japan, Mexico and in Louisiana here in the States. Cayenne seems high on the heat scale for the average person, but at 40,000 heat units (Scoville) it’s about a 4 or 5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Putting cayenne in the freezer can make it even hotter, so be careful!

We carry ground cayenne, which is reddish orange and commonly referred to as ground red pepper in many recipes. Cayenne will add zest to almost any dish. We suggest working dash to dash; in other words, add a dash and taste, and then repeat until you have the heat level you desire. Great added to chili or curry.

Cayenne peppers are native to the Caribbean.
“Received my order of Urfa and Aleppo chilies recently and had to let you know that these are the freshest chilies I have purchased since being in Istanbul a few years ago. Believe me when I need replenishment I will go only to Savory Spice Shop. Thanks for the quality.”
