Pepper Peeling Day
You know it's really fall at Casa Rancho when it's pepper peeling day.
Today was that day.
A bushel of fresh Anaheim peppers, grown up in Brighton got peeled and packed into freezer bags.
A bushel makes about 30 bags of 6-8 peppers a piece.
We saved out some for tonight's meal.
These will become Chile Rellenos. I put a small slit near the stem, clean the seeds out, and fill with jack cheese cut in strips...............
If they split to much, I add toothpicks to hold them together. Then I pop the pan in the freezer. After a few hours, the are frozen solid and easier to handle.
After dipping in a egg bath, they go into the skillet.
Today was a great treat because The Husband whipped up a batch of pork green chili, with the last of the peppers from last year.
A little sour cream on top............Really good stuff. We had a nice meal and fed the neighbors as well!
If you're coming to Casa Rancho..............let me know...........I'll whip you up a batch!
