Medium to hot with a balanced flavor, ground cayenne is a kitchen staple. While standard grocery store cayenne powder can be dusty and only mildly hot, our cayenne is bursting with flavor and a well rounded heat! Up to 10x as hot as a jalapeño, cayenne peppers are roughly equivalent to a serrano. Peppery and slightly fruity, with a hint of grilled bell pepper, ground cayenne is the perfect chile powder to sprinkle on egg salad, fried fish, or to kick up the heat on a pot of curry.
