HATCH CHILE ROASTING 2009 Please add dates

DWB | Jul 14, 2009 10:12 PM

My LAT arrived with the wrong weekly market advertisments for my address, but lucky me the Albertson's ad had the Hatch chile roasting schedule for selected stores this season. Last year some were able to attend events at Bristol Farms, with the benefit of being able to buy roasted chiles in smaller quantities than a 30 lb. sack. Last year the roasting that I attended began at 8 am, I arrived near that time and was probably 80 to 100 in line. People in front of line arrived before 6 am! We left with our bounty after 11 am. Standard disclaimers, as a fresh agricultural product, the chiles are subject to climactic conditions. Call stores to confirm date. Take a large ice chest or tub to transport chiles home to protect auto interior, freshly roasted chiles exude much liquid. Stock up on 1 gallon freezer bags to porportion freshly roasted chiles for freezing(and sharing).

Albertson's New Mexico Hatch Chili 30 lb. sack, $28.99. Free Roasting 8am. to 2 pm.
