Cayenne - Indian
India / Capsicum annum
A wonderfully fresh version of this easily recognizable ground chile that can be used in everything from curries to cocoa. Its clean heat intensifies and clarifies flavors much like salt or lemon. A dusting of cayenne over fresh papaya or mango is a Caribbean tradition.
