The Ring of Fire is one of our favourite chillies it dries amazingly well giving a glossy red shine. It is a medium heat chilli averaging around 90,000 - 100,000 on the Scoville Scale. To give you an idea the really hot chillies are a million + on the scale and mild chillies are 30,000.
So this is the perfect chilli for those that like a little heat but do not want to melt. You can finely chop up the chillies and add them to your food, put them in a grinder or put them in water to re hydrate and use them like fresh chillies.
We slow dry our chillies to give them a distinctive smokey taste which adds lots of flavour and heat into any dish. Dried chillies will last several years and every kitchen should have some laying around!
How to use it
Grind it well and sprinkle into savoury or sweet food to give it a bit of a kick!
