Cayenne (?) harvest
Not sure what these chilies are, thinking now perhaps cayenne. Whatever they are, now that they are ripe, they have a hard skin and are tough for chewing fresh. Beautiful added whole to some dishes, where you get the flavor but don't want to eat the chili.
I didn't want to waste them, and it has been warm here so I didn't want to dehydrate them in the kitchen, and our sun is scorching hot and would probably bleach them as it does to our exposed tomatoes.
So I threaded a bunch on a string and hung them out on the deck. They get some sun thru the 2x2 overhead. Just an experiment for me.
Even if they don't do well, I sure am having fun seeing them as decorations from my recliner!
How do you dry yours?
