“I use green chiles often in my recipes so I went looking for a way to make my own that I could freeze. Surprizingly they are quite easy to harvest and I find them tasty, not to mention a cheaper way to get the flavours into your meals. You can use many different varieties of chiles for roasting such as poblano chiles, anaheim peppers &/or jalapeños. Either make a batch just enough for your recipe or store in the freezer for later use.”
