Cayenne Pepper is a blend of the dried, ripe fruit of Capsicum annuum. This powdered cayenne pepper is naturally a deep, brownish-red colour. It has a pungent, spicy hot flavour that is a great addition to spice mixes and savoury recipes.
The pungent, spicy hot flavour of cayenne pepper is wonderful in vegetable, seafood and meat dishes. Great for spice mixes, seasoned rubs, marinades and hot sauces. Add some to curries, bean dishes, tempeh, slow cooked lamb, grilled prawns, soups and casseroles. Sprinkle just a little over poached or scrambled eggs. Or add a pinch of cayenne to tomato juice for a peppery drink.
