Cayenne Pepper

Available in
30g ECO Pack


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

Suggested Uses

Use to add heat to curries, stews and casseroles, as well as sauces, pickles and chutneys.

Use in savoury baking to add colour and spice.

Use sparingly, add mid-way through the cooking process.

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.

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.
