Capsicum frutescens, capsicum annum, cayenne bird's eye, chili.
Cayenne comes from tropical America, from southern Mexico, but its largest plantations are currently located in South Asia, especially Thailand and India.
In addition to being one of the essentials in the kitchen of every good gourmet, providing a special spark to the dishes, cayenne pepper is highly coveted in many cultures due to its legendary healing properties. Cayenne is a powerful painkiller (thanks to the fact that it contains capsaicin), it is antispasmodic, tonic and stimulant, anticoagulant, antihemorrhagic, aperitif and carminative.
This variety, known as "bird's eye" ( Capsicum frutescens ) owes its name to the fact that someone at the time must have remembered it to the eye of some bird.
Usually between 20 mm and 30 mm, it is one of the spiciest varieties.
If you have been suffering from rheumatism for years, here is a tip: infuse 100 grams of cayenne in 500ml of olive oil, for 2 hours (remember that it must be at a low temperature, to avoid burning). When it's cold, just strain it, put it away, and use it to massage the sore areas.
IMPORTANT, wash your hands really well afterwards. If you take them to the eyes, mouth, etc. you can have a really bad time.
