Why I Love This Recipe

An easy and great way to store your jalapeño peppers and keep some for winter months.

Ingredients You'll Need

Jalapeno peppers
String or dental floss


Thread the needle with a 20-inch-long length of string or dental floss. Tie a knot in the end of the string.

Insert the needle through a hot pepper (near the stem). Pass the hot pepper all the way along the string until it stops at the knot at the end of the string.

Tie a knot in the string approximately ½-inch above the hot pepper. This will space the peppers along the string and ensure that air circulates adequately around each pepper.

Repeat steps above to string all of the hot peppers onto the string.
Remove the needle from the string and tie a loop on the end of the string.
Hang the hot peppers in a sunny window.
Leave to dry for a couple weeks until they dry and turn red.
Then, remove from string, store (in an airtight container for up to 6 months), use or give them as gifts or grind them up in a spice grinder or similar device as chilli powder to use or give as gifts. Just be careful of the chili dust when you are grinding.
