Crushed red pepper (CRP) or red pepper flakes (RPF) is
a condiment consisting of dried and
crushed (as opposed to ground) red chili peppers.
Crushed red pepper shakers have become as standard as
salt and pepper on tables at Italian style restaurants and especially pizza
parlors in the United States.
Often there is a high ratio of seeds, which some people believe intensifies the
heat of this flavorful condiment.
Crushed red pepper is used by food manufacturers in pickling blends, chowders,
spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, soups and sausage.
Crushed red pepper is known as pul biber in Turkey and it
is a very popular spice to add to foods.
