Spicy Saturday: Cayenne
Cayenne comes from Capsicum genus. The fiery red cayenne isn’t sourced from one pepper. Cayenne has a bright red color with 40,000 Scoville heat units. Cayenne is very hot but it also provides a unique flavor that goes beyond spicy. Cayenne gets hotter the longer it cooks. Use cayenne pepper sparingly since in some people it gives stomach aches and a feeling of being sick.
Cayenne pepper was originally grown in Central and South America.
Cayenne pepper boost up your metabolism, can reduce hunger, lowers blood pressure, may aid digestive health, may relieve pain, may improve psoriasis.
Cayenne can be easily stored in the pantry for almost a year.
