A key ingredient in hot sauces and great for cooking, Season 1 ground cayenne pepper will kick up the heat of anything you make. Sometimes labeled as "red pepper," cayenne is ground from a blend of several particularly hot varieties of dried red chili peppers. Its extremely hot and pungent flavor will add plenty of zest to barbeque, meat marinades, and buffalo wings.
Cayenne Pepper provides the intense heat needed in Cajun, Indian, African and Moroccan cuisines. A well-placed pinch brightens up cream soup, tomato sauces for pasta, baked crackers, focaccia, stewed or dried fruits or dips for crudités.
