Fresh Chiles

Friday, August 20, 2010
If you've ever seen those dark red chile ristas (lots of chiles tied in a 2' long bunch) hanging from the eaves of houses in the Southwest, well let me tell you, this is how they start out.  Fresh chiles are licked and tied together with raffia and strung up to dry.  This is a simple storage solution and you just pick a chile when you're ready to cook.
