We learned how to make a ristra this past Saturday. This is a traditional way of drying peppers. Utilizing some string and lots of knots the peppers can be hung up while getting proper air flow to prevent them from spoiling as they dry out. The dry peppers can be rehydrated by soaking them in water or ground into powders to be used in a variety of  culinary applications.
