When canning recipe calls for cayenne

The dilled pickled green beans recipe I got here calls for 1 tsp cayenne papper per pint. Is this fresh cayenne? 1 tsp ground dried cayenne seems like a lot of pepper per pint. Thanks.

The recipe I have is for 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne or Tabasco Sauce. That's with 5 cups each of Vinegar and Water. Sound like your recipe? If so you may have a typo.

I think it is way to much pepper 1/4 tsp would be plenty unless you like it spicy
Cook with passion or don't cook at all

While I agree that 1 teaspoon of dried ground cayenne per pint does seem like a bit too much for my taste - there is no indication that they mean anything else.

Normally, if they were talking about fresh peppers, the instructions would say something like - 1 small cayenne pepper (for a whole pepper), or 1 teaspoon sliced/chopped cayenne pepper if using a fresh pepper.

Thanks for your help. I kept looking at recipes & most everyone used pepper flakes.
