“DH randomly INSISTED on growing fresh cayenne pepper in the garden this year! I have no clue what to do with fresh cayenne pepper other than dry it out, so I have gone on a search for recipes using these lovely little peppers! Here is one I found on I have not made and I am posting for safekeeping!”
