Dried Chile Threads 1 oz
Red pepper chile threads are 2-3 inches long and reddish brown when dried. They're similar in heat level to crushed red pepper. These threads have a smoky, fresh, grassy flavor. The threads can be served as is, softened, toasted or both. Lightly toasting the threads brings out a fuller flavor and makes them more palatable. Toast only for a minute or so over a medium heat and keep them moving to avoid burning. Soaking the threads in water for 10-15 minutes will soften them and give a feathery appearance. Can be used as an ingredient or beautiful garnish. NON IRRADIATED.
