Cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper gives perfect taste to your food. But beyond that, it also has some health benefits, which make it one of the spices that should never be missing from your closet.
Cayenne pepper comes from the dried fruits of Capsicum Frutescens, is related to chili and is used in small quantities to give color and flavor. They are thin, usually red, with a pointed tip and somewhat wrinkled skin. They are dried and ground to make the spice of the same name, which may or may not contain pepper seeds. They come from Central and South America and first arrived in Europe in the 15th century, from Christopher Columbus. The substance capsaicin contained in it, is what gives it its taste and its beneficial characteristics.
