Making chili pepper ristras

This summer I grew a jalapeño and a cayenne pepper plant in my garden, and man, are they prolific! There's no way we could eat that many hot peppers, so I decided to make ristras.

My latest harvest of about 60 jalapeño peppers.

I strung them with a thin needle and fishing line.

Here they are, all strung up and ready for drying.

I made three mini ristras so I could hang them from my vegtable baskets. One of the peppers is already turing red.

And here are the cayenne peppers from earlier this summer.
