Any chilli growers in the house? We're having an interesting time with Pot Black chillis, amazing range of colours and shapes, just about to start stringing a few up to decorate the shed. Can't find much about them online though, just wondering if anyone's got experience with them?

I haven't grown your particular variety but the method is the same.
Once ripe, use a darning needle threaded with strong cotton, push the needle thru the stem - not the fruit - and continue to make a thread of chillis as long as suits you. Hang them in a warm, dry place until they begin to dry/shrivel. When completely dry, store the fruits in an airtight box in the cool. You can then grind them into a powder and use as necessary or leave them whole - whichever suits.
You can also use them fresh - I'm sure you know that but again, not knowing this variety, I don't know how hot or sweet they are.
Enjoy them anyway however you use them
Sounds like they're HOT HOT HOT so use with care
