Every Aug. they harvest Hatch Chili's and this time of the month they have them at Albertson Market here in Ventura. Today I picked up 4-lbs. of them to roast and freeze them so I have them for the rest of the year.



On the BGE @ 350* to roast

Put them in a ziplock bag for 45 min- 60 min then skin and devain and seed them

Ready to vacumn seal and freeze

Thanks for looking

I've heard about these, Ross.

What makes them so special?

Are they hot or mild?

What does the ziplock bag step do, Ross?

Residual heat from the cook in a sealed bag (could be paper) causes steam which helps the skin loosen and makes the skin peel more easily. Makes them so much easier to peel.

Beautiful Ross. Is there nothing that Green Egg can’t do? Don’t answer……I know…..it can do it all, and I want one!!!! :clap:

I get a half bushel of Hatch shipped to me from Denver most years. IMO they are the best available. Grown in sandy soil in dry, hot climates, they have a unique flavor. About average heat for hot peppers.

In Denver, they are sold on street corners either fresh or roasted in barrel type mesh roasters over open flames. The peppers you get in the south are grown in climates much too warm and damp for good peppers.

Average heat? Like jalapenos? They are about as hot as I can stand.

Oh that leaves me out then. Jalapenos are way too hot for me!

Ross, I always enjoy seeing your pictures!

Some are quite mild. They are sold on the street corners here, too. Actually, the parking lot at a bowling alley... with roasters. So when you get home, you just take the skin off and freeze them.
Someone gave some powder to me, it was fab. Just dry them (dehydrator) and grind them into powder.
