    INDIA. One of the most pungent varieties of chile, Cayenne Pepper contains both the flesh and seed making it very hot. Recipes that call for red pepper are referring to cayenne pepper. The heat measure of our ground cayenne pepper varies from 30,000-50,000 scoville heat units The variation is based on individual growing conditions, soil and weather. Cayenne adds heat and flavor to biscuits, cheese, egg and curry dishes. Great in buffalo wing sauce, chili, spaghetti and pizza sauces, soups and stews. Add cayenne pepper to oils for meat and poultry rubs. Adds extra kick to homemade salsa.
