Cayenne Pepper History

The cayenne pepper is one of the most popular peppers used in the Western hemisphere. The name of the pepper is taken from the city of Cayenne in French Guinea, from where the pepper originates and where its first documented uses were found. Cayenne peppers are usually used as a dried spice, which is made by drying and grinding the peppers or pulping and baking them into cakes, which are then ground to produce the spice. Cayenne peppers can also be used fresh in dishes, but are a little harder to find outside of the powdered form.

Cayenne Chili Peppers

Cayenne is a very popular pepper that is used in a variety of dishes and flavorings. You can buy cayenne pepper at most supermarkets in a variety of forms - the most noticeable form being the red powder, but the majority of chili flakes that can be found on the market are from Cayenne peppers. In addition, the vast majority of popular hot sauces all rely on cayenne for part of their kick, particularly if the sauce also contains vinegar. The cayenne pepper is a sub-tropical to tropical plant natively, but they can be grown as annuals in temperate climates as well. They can even be overwintered if protected from frost!
