Default Cayenne Pepper Uses

So we bought a pepper plant that was mislabeled that ended up being cayenneís. Anyone have a good use or recipe for them? That plant is producing better than any of my others and I donít know what to do with them.

Dry them and use a coffee grinder to turn them into powder.

Pepper jelly
Dry, mince, store in a shaker for adding to food

Endless possibilities

I wish mine were producing like yours! I plan to dry and make powder with mine. I bought a $14 blender at Walmart to do this... donít use your main blender!

This sounds simple enough. May try that this afternoon to get some taken care of. That is for all the ideas. Keep them coming.

Then when you want to use them you throw them in a food processor or something? That recipe looks more like pickled peppers, rather than a sauce. Just curious, because a sauce would be good to make and have on hand.

You add the juice to food like greens or pinto beans. They add great flavor and a little spice.

I had 29 cayenne plants I grew from seeds last year. I have enough to last me the rest of my life now.


Got about 9 gallons in freezer bags in the freezer. They will get used for all sorts of things from dried pepper, to salsa.

I got pinned under my Harley years ago and my exhaust pipe burned me kinda badly. Wouldn't heel and they were going to do a skin graft. A friend told me Indians treated burns with it. With nothing to lose I gave it a try - next day I had a solid scab and the Dr. didn't believe me when I told him. I got a nasty 3rd degree burn on my hand last year and just used that everyday for about a month and it healed up just fine - didn't even burn, it just tingles for a bit. I do love the whole peppers with BBQ too!

You put cayenne pepper powder on a burn?

If you sprinkle the powder in an area where hogs or armadillos have been rooting around then they will stop and won’t come back for quit some time.

...one of the most flavorful peppers out there that is not so hot you can't taste 'em because of the burn... Yea, they're spicy, but roasted, they add excellent flavor to just about any dish without adding a lot of "hot"... Lots of Chinese dishes use them roasted and whole so you can pick 'em out I guess, but I just chew 'em up...
