After the sun-drying process, the red peppers go through a machine that turns it into isot chili flakes, giving it a color ranging from deep purple to a dark, purplish black. /VCG Photo

Isot pepper is less spicy than many other chili peppers, but known for its tangy flavor and lasting heat. It is an important condiment in Turkish cuisine. /VCG Photo

Besides chili peppers, local workers also mash tomatoes to create sun-dried tomato paste. /VCG Photo
