Ristras of jalapeños, other chili peppers, and garlic at a market in Montreal.

A ristra is an arrangement of drying chili pepper pods for later consumption. In addition to its practical use, the ristra has come to be a trademark of decorative design in the state of New Mexico.

Garlic can also be arranged into a ristra for drying and curing after the bulbs have matured and the leaves have died away.[1][2]
