Chili threads are extremely thin threads of dried red pepper. Measuring in at about a half millimeter by about three inches in length, they make a show-stopping garnish on just about anything.
Traditionally used in kimchee, chili threads can be used on soups, salads, hors doeuvres, or anything that can use a touch of beauty and a burst of chili flavor. The threads are quite pliable, and can be lightly toasted in a dry skillet to bring out a deeper flavor.
