Hot Portugal (Red)

The Red Hot Portugal is a type of cayenne pepper. The origin of the cayenne is unknown. It is named after the Cayenne River in French Guiana, but is not grown in South America. Some speculate that the Portugese may have transferred it from Europe, then to Africa and India, where it appears today in many forms. The Hot Portugal is translucent, bright red, tapering to a point, and measuring about 2 to 4 inches long and about 1/2 inch across. It is thin fleshed and has very pungent heat, often wrinkled and irregular in shape with an acidic tart flavor and smoky, dusty tones. Immature green pods are used fresh in salsas. The most common method is to grind the dried red pods into powder or crush them into flakes. They can be added to sauces and soups. In Louisiana, numerous hot sauces are made with cayennes.
