The cayenne pepper is a thin chili pepper, green to red in color, about 2 to 5 inches long. The “cayenne pepper” spice you find mostly in pizza restaurants is the dried, ground version of this pepper.
Cayenne is a very popular pepper that is used in a variety of dishes and flavorings. You can buy cayenne pepper at most supermarkets in a variety of forms – the most noticeable form being the red powder, but the majority of chili flakes that can be found on the market are from Cayenne peppers.
Those that know me will know this is my favourite chilli by a country mile, I use them on just about everything including my Sunday roast occasionally. I love this variety so much that I named my Cocker Spaniel after this variety and yes he has equally as much energy and spice for life.
