While the term “Cayenne” is often times used to refer to any ground pepper it is actually a unique type of chile pepper that is between four and twelve inches long, thin and features a slightly smoky, tart, and pungent. This ground cayenne pepper is a reddish orange in color and may be used in any recipe that calls for ground red pepper. This particular pepper comes in at 30,000-40,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units) but don’t let that fool you – we still recommend adding this spice to your dishes “one pinch at a time”. This way you will be able to locate the ideal heat level for you.
