Hot , Hot , Hot ..........................................

and I'm not talking about the weather (LOL). I'm taking care of the cayenne peppers today. We love hot and spicy foods around here ..........
So I string some to hang in the kitchen , we love cooked cabbage spiced up with red peppers .............................


I dry some for grinding into red pepper flakes , I love to sprinkle it atop my spaghetti or other pasta dishes ........


I also freeze a few of the cayenne peppers to make a thai hot sauce that calls for hot pepper , we love that sauce with rice and stemmed cabbage.

I'm planning to tincture some dried cayenne and jalapeno soon. I've never made cayenne tincture , but after reading about the benefits of cayenne peppers , would love to have some on hand. If you're interested in the benefits and the making of cayenne tincture , check-out this link
