Although we have started to harvest some excellent chiles from the garden, we have also bought some great varieties from Three Sisters Farm at the New Paltz Farmers Market. they are always super knowledgeable and ready to teach you how to use the produce to its best capacity. Last Sunday we made spicy-rice-and-bean-stuffed peppers with homemade jalapeño poppers–fantastic! After such a great pepper dinner, I was inspired to begin picking our own anaheim chiles to roast and freeze for a later date.

If you would like to roast peppers to use later in the year, it’s very easy. Oil them and lay them on a cookie sheet. Set the oven to broil and check them after 1-2 minutes. Depending on their size, they should cook very quickly. Be careful not to let them burn too much. Turn them so they blister evenly on all sides. Remove them from the oven, wrap collectively in wet paper towels and seal in a plastic bag for 20-30 minutes. You may want to wear gloves when you open it up and peel the peppers, depending on how hot your variety is. peppers can then be frozen or used as is fresh for slicing, stuffing, or salsas. Enjoy!
