Our natural edible ristra is made from New Mexico grown sun-dried Sandia Hot Chile. They are all individually hand-tied and uniquely different from each other. The ristra originated from native New Mexican people who strung up their chile to sun dry for later use. The ristra has become a sign of hospitality and a welcome greeting. They make excellent gifts for people from the Southwest or for those enjoy our rich cultural heritage.
To make red chile sauce from the edible ristra, it is ideal for your to start at the top of the ristra. Just slide the corn husk topper up, untie the necessary pods, slide the topper back into place, and continue to enjoy your ristra and your red chile sauce.
