Each September, the village of Diamante in Calabria celebrates its crop at the Hot Pepper Festival. The entire village hangs red braids of chile peppers on their balconies to dry. This braid weaves the stems of fifty peppers to create a beautiful accessory for your kitchen as well as a continual supply of delicious heat. Snip and crush whenever you need a little spice in your dish. Hang on your kitchen wall and take some when needed.
Ingredients: Dried hot peppers.
