Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Cayenne is a species of extremely hot chili pepper. It is small to medium sized (about 2 - 5 inches long) and bright red. Most cayenne grown today is dried and ground into cayenne pepper. Buy ground cayenne in small amounts so that it doesn't lose its fresh flavor. As it ages, it turns from a bright pepper red to a duller brownish red.
