    I may have overpurchased a little bit...

    So, Sharon comes home from the grocery store yesterday and casually mentions that they had some hatch chiles at the store. "Oh, They've got a few set out and one 25# box".

    I immediately go into a frenzy and I may have questioned her decision making process in that she didn't bring home that 25# box! So I got up bright and early and drove down to the store and look what they still had...

    Looks like I'll be busy this afternoon roasting, peeling, vacuum packing, and freezing some Chiles!

    Very cool. Young Guns is one of the better-known brands.

    25 pounds, huh? So September is covered...what about the other 11 months?

    I was wondering about the brand. Figured there had to be more than one!

    I may actually dedicate one of our garden beds to trying to grow these next year.

    I think 25# will keep me busy this afternoon in the heat.... Might have to just have some cooling refreshing beverages while I process these...

    We should be good to grow them as I hear they need elevation and cool evenings (we're at 4300' vs. 4000' in Hatch)...don't know why that wouldn't work...I can see it know... "Korn-Hatch" chiles

    Here in the land of hot and humid Anaheim's will just have to do....and they seem to do quite nicely. I'll plant more next year. I think there is a Ristras worth here.....well, maybe not If they were for sale at the local grocery store, I'd buy a box of Young Guns in a flash.

    I was reading a Facebook thread about green chile, and was kind of surprised to see some of the quantities that people buy every year. People were talking about buying 4 or 5 boxes at a time, or 3 or 4 bags (35#). You can see why they came up with the propane-fired chile roasters.
