Shrub-Ripened Ground Cayenne


We have sold out of our 2020 cayenne harvest. Our farmers are working on a bright new batch for 2021, which will be available by Spring. Please sign up for restock alerts above.

Our farmer grows cayenne pepper alongside Ceylon cinnamon and heirloom ginger on his farm in the central hills of Sri Lanka. 

He lets the green cayenne ripen and turn its wonderfully bright red color on the shrub itself. Then he handpicks mature peppers and lays them out to naturally dry in the tropical sun. This makes his cayenne intensely spicy, yet also has a floral sweetness that blew us away when we first tasted it. 

This ground cayenne is pure pepper and contains no stems. Our farmer handpicks each pepper under strict quality control, which makes this powder bright and floral in taste and color without the bitterness at the end of the bite.

Tastes bright, floral and intense without bitterness.

  • Ripened on the shrub
  • Pure cayenne pepper with no stems
  • Handpicked from a single farm
  • No pesticides sprayed at any time
  • Milled on demand on the farm

How to use

  • Add to curries, soups, stews, chili and pickles
  • Fry 1 tsp in olive oil before adding vegetables for a stir fry
  • Sprinkle over fresh fruit: pineapple, mango, apple, pear, melon along with salt — Trust us. You NEED to try this!
  • Stir into spiced hot chocolate to intensify cocoa flavor
  • Add a dash to spiced hot cider for a cozy holiday beverage
