Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper comes from red, hot chili peppers. It is also known as the African red pepper, American red pepper, Spanish pepper, bird pepper, or Guinea pepper as it is sometimes called in the United Kingdom.

 

It is also sometimes called by its Latin derivative capsicum. Cayenne pepper comes from the dried pods of chili peppers and is used as a spice for culinary uses as well as alternative health purposes. The herb is named for the capital city of Cayenne in French Guiana, a country on the northern border of Brazil in South America. The word cayenne comes from the Tupi word "kyinha," which literally means "hot pepper."

 

How is cayenne pepper powder made? The peppers or fruit are dried and ground, or pulped and baked into cakes, which are then finely ground and then sifted to make the powdered spice.

 

This powdered spice is well known to cooks and chefs the world over but its true value lie in its medicinal properties. Indeed, it is one of the best-kept health secrets of the modern world.
