Reminder to self: Penzeys spices are actually _spicy_

Something I was reminded of when I added a mere half-teaspoon of cayenne to a substantial pot of black beans, which resulted in beans with a hell of a kick. My last container of cayenne had been some elderly supermarket brand, of which you could put in teaspoons of and not get too hot.

Fortunately, not inedibly hot, and will still go fine with white rice. Am grateful I restrained myself, as my original plan was a teaspoon.
