I’ve made pepper sauce (simple whole peppers in vinegar), tabasco sauce, and still they keep coming, so I strung string after string of these and hung them up in the kitchen window.
Pretty and useful. When they are completely dried I can crumble one off as needed and use it as I would any dried pepper flakes.
Bunches of somewhat larger red peppers bundled together and strung up similarly to this are called ristras, and are a sort of symbol of the U.S. Southwest. Very cute. These peppers, tabascos, pop off their stems as they are harvested, so they won’t string up in bunches like most peppers and have to be strung like this.
It’s very easy to do, and it goes very fast. Just thread dental floss or heavy string (about a foot or a foot and a half) on any needle and knot a button onto the end.
Then, string the tiny peppers along the string, piercing through the center of the side of each pepper. Make a loop at the end for hanging, and hang anywhere small kids won’t be able to reach. Or pets.
