Our family has declared that Christmas is now in August! Nothing says "Love" like the feeling you get when you throw your arms around the FedEx guy because he delivered your 25 lbs of fresh Hatch Chile to your doorstep. The children's eyes were filled with wonder as we opened the box of Big Jims (a couple of reds made for interesting conversations with the 4 yo - and now we know "those" are his favorites). Last year we improvised and used the Big Green Egg to roast our chiles. 2017 was our first time ordering those mouthwatering lovelies, and - our process - although not in true NM form worked well enough, we remained committed to the cause. 2018 Father's Day included a table-top roaster to show Dada Burge how much we appreciate him. Having the roaster made this year's batch processing even more fun! The 4 yo made sure one red chile was put in a batch for roasting so we could make sure it was turning right. There was maybe one or two chiles that didn't make the cut for roasting, but the remaining 25 lbs were phenomenal specimens to behold! We ate them fresh out of the roaster with tortillas - we made Green Chile Stew - we made chile rellenos. We gave some to our friends and family, and we froze some to keep us going until next year. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our New Mexico taste buds sing! ~ Much love Your Hatch-loving Floyd, Virginian family - the Burgesses
