2. Thread basting needle with cotton thread, double the thread and add a knot at the bottom. Make sure the doubled thread is as long as you want your rista to be

3. Pierce the stem of your pepper with needle and string first pepper all the way to the bottom of thread

4. Make a knot about an inch away from your first pepper to space your peppers for greater air flow
