Shrub-Ripened Ground Cayenne


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

He lets the peppers ripen and turn that wonderful bright red color on the pepper 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 only and contains no stems. Our farmer handpicks each pepper under strict quality control, which makes this powder bright and floral in taste and color.

Tastes bright, floral and intense.
