Spice up the kitchen with some dried chilli pepper strings.
Cut three lengths of ribbon measuring 25" each.
Tie together at one end, pin to a pincushion, pleat / braid together and tie together at the final end.
Loop over and tie the two ends together.
Take a selection of ripe chillis, 6 or more.
Take a needle and thread, pierce through the top (stalk end) of the chillis and thread on to your ribbon loop.
Hang to dry out, in a cool dark place, for several weeks and you can then use the dried chillis for cooking.
