Peppers are usually dried in the sun and shrink there. Then peppers released from their cups go milling. Cayenne pepper named by the name of Cayenne city in Guiana (South America) is created this way. You can hang pepper pods in a dry place and keep them slightly dried the whole winter. You can use this pepper fresh (mainly in vegetable dishes and pickled products). Dried red pepper is used as in pods as well powdered.
