Remember the Ristra

So if you have been around, you may have read how to make a ristra in ten steps (November 2017). Well, I got around to dealing with it while cleaning the mud room to prepare for planting seedlings.

Ristras are the peppers tied up to dry. We got a box of Hatch peppers on a trip through southern Colorado and dried them.

Today I took them down, put them in the cuisinart and made red pepper plates and chili sauce (combo apple and white wine vinegar,plus some water).

Holy cow it’s hot.

I’ve got one jar of each for us and one for my brother and his family.

In other signs of spring, I saw my first red wing blackbird of the year!!!

My favorite.
