RE: Chile Roastin Time...
Well, fresh green chile lovers, I expedited from southern New Mexico yesterday via UPS a bushel of freshly picked Hatch green to our Cajun friend, 007bond, old JB. He says he knows how to roast and put away these morsels of goodness. I sent along my recommendations as to preparation and freezing. He and I have been doing some "trading", no $ involved.
Occurred to me to make this offer. Foremost, I'm not looking to make a profit from anyone. However, I offer a thought for my Roadfood friends. I do have a reasonably good source to fresh green chile. A bushel roasted and frozen keeps my wife and I doing very well from one year to the next. Roasting and putting away is somewhat a fun time for us. Currently,and not likely to change, a bushel I can get will cost me $15.00,thats YOUR PRICE. Now, add to that shipping cost. JB's bushel cost about $24.00, via UPS. If you are interested, e-mail me, we'll work out the details. The fresh Chile source I have will end about mid Sept.
