Craft hour (without the hot glue)

This is just a fraction of the Thai chilis that my one small plant has produced in the past few months. I can't use that much heat in the kitchen on a regular basis, so I decided to dry them. Those internets had a ton of resources about how to make ristras or strings of chilis. Most of them seemed to be geared toward larger peppers, but I think mine came out just fine. They're drying nicely in my kitchen. Once they're completely dried out I'll probably store some whole and pulse some in a food processor.

This is a beautiful photo. I can't believe these are all off one plant. Great idea for using them, too.

Ahhh... I have a very small Thai chilli plant that one day, I hope, will give me lots of chillies. I can use 'em all! :) Assuming I dont kill the plant with too much TLC...
