Thai chilies (aka Bird Chilies) show up in Thai, Chinese, and other Asian cuisines. They bring a lot of heat to the party in addition to their bright red color.
WARNING: Use rubber gloves when handling Thai Chilies.
Store Thai peppers in an air-tight container in a cool, dark cupboard.
Thai peppers will retain their flavor for at least a year, but likely much longer.
RECIPES & TIPS
Reconstitute Thai chilies and add to soups, sauces, and other dishes. Chop them up, toast them (optional) slightly and add them still dried. Take the tops off and grind them into chili powder using a spice grinder or blender for use as is or as part of your own spice blends. Thai chilies are an essential ingredient in most Thai curries. Also consider adding them to homemade aioli and remoulades where the mayonnaise will help soften their punch.
