I Need Some Spice In My Life!
Cayenne is on the shopping list but it's a nightshade: Nightshades are any plant from the family Solanaceae. We are namely interested in two genera: Capsicum and Solanum, or the pepper genus and tomato/eggplant/potato genus respectively. (I took this from http://www.realfooduniversity.com/nightshades/).
Is it ok because it's assumed that it will only be used in small amounts (ha!)?
I made my own horseradish from a horseradish root (horseradish root, water, vinegar). Is this ok? I'm really just looking for any tiny reason to have an eyeball burning, nose dripping, steam-out-of-ears pepper frenzy. Is anybody else a "hothead?"
