  1. ok, now what do I do with them, I had some left over last smoke, and let them set on the counter, and they are now turning red ( getting ripe ) I think, are they still good to eat, does it make them hotter?, I am very clueless!

    You can continue to let them dry out, later you can grind them into flakes (minus the stems)or soak them in water for 15-20 minutes to rehydrate them. Don't over soak as they will taste bitter. *** If they are still fresh, toast/roast them till the skin is black, put them in a plastic bag for awhile, and then remove the skin and freeze.*** To cut down on the heat, remove seeds and the membranes, that is where most of the heat lies.

    *** This is what I do when I buy a 30 lb. sack.

    i make salsa out of mine and use apple cider vinegar instead of regular, w/ garden maters. and it comes out a bit warm but simmering w/ the ac vinegar it comes out sweeter.

    Right around the beginning of September (holiday weekend) hundreds of folks bring truck loads of sacks from Hatch new Mexico and sell them on corners, school parking lots, and some local stores. They will usually roast the bag for $5-$10. If you plan on someone shipping them to you, you might have a problem with the fresh, roasted not much of a problem as any bugs would have been burned off. Same situation if you were to drive to Hatch and bring back chile sacks. I'll try to get some specific locations for you.

    Hotter is ok, but you need to change the recipe from ABT's to Come on Ice Cream ABT's!!! [​IMG]

    I believe we have all experienced that strange phenomenon where peppers go in tasty and enjoyable and come out with flames and tears !
