The “Herb of Fire”

Family: SOLANACEAE

My first real experience with Cayenne Pepper[1] was when Fergus and I went on holiday to Tasmania and I learnt a lot about this magnificent “Herb of Fire”.

We had read how effective Cayenne was in stabilizing body temperature so we started taking it a month before we went on holiday knowing it would be cold.

We took a dessert spoon in water every day; at first it was not a pleasant experience but after 3 days it was a lot easier to take once our bodies had learnt that this was beneficial.

Within a week we could walk outside naked and not feel the cold. This was in winter in Northern NSW and the temperatures were not much above 0°C.

We went to Tasmania in July (midwinter - the coldest time) and we didn't feel the cold. While we were there we augmented the Cayenne with a teaspoon of powder in each sock at the beginning of the day which gave our feet an enduring cosy warm glow throughout the day.

Cayenne Pepper is made from the dried pods of hot chili peppers and originated from the West Indies and South and Central America. These peppers are a member of the Capsicum family, and contain a compound called capsaicin. Jalapeno peppers are also very high in capsaicin.
