Drying chillies.

Last Sunday we harvested almost 1000 "ring o fire" chillies, and threaded them to dry hanging around the Rayburn stove in the farmhouse kitchen. Using a needle and thread, we sewed the chillies together by pushing the needle through the thick part of the stalk near its base, then hung them in the warm and dry for 2 or 3 weeks. They should then store for several months, depending on the damp.
