Cayenne Peppers

Cayenne Peppers
(Cayenne Peppers) Cayenne peppers are mostly used in cooking hot-spicy dishes. They can be used fresh and finely chopped or ground in a blender for adding to chilies, curries, or other spicy recipes. Cayenne pepper is usually sold as a powder or in a thin, vinegar-based sauce (hot sauce). It is generally rated at 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Units. When young and green, they are less hot. The hotness produced by cayenne peppers is caused by its high concentration of a substance called capsaicin. Technically referred to as 8-methyul-N-vanillyl-6-nonenamide, capsaicin has been widely studied for its pain-reducing effects, its cardiovascular benefits, and its ability to help prevent ulcers. Capsaicin also effectively opens and drains congested nasal passages. We could not find any nutritional information for whole cayenne peppers; however, you can see the full nutritional chart for ground cayenne pepper.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
