You can make ristras as long as you want. When you have tied all of your chilies, bring both ends together and hang them on a wall or where they will get direct sunlight for few weeks.
Your chili pepper ristras are ready when all chilies turn red and have wrinkled skin. I feel rewarded after doing this little DIY project, especially because all my harvest is organic which means, my store bought dry red chilies are no longer needed!
Go organic! Grow and preserve your own chilies !
