Alright chile fiends, it's that time again for Orange County to be enveloped in the sweet roasted scent of hatch chiles. The season has finally come and it only lasts from August to September. Don't forget, these gems can be frozen after roasting so prepare yourselves and stock up for the rest of this year and the next. Here's a list of the local markets where you can pick up some bushels and get them roasted on sight. Let us know if more roasting locations pop over the month and and we'll keep you updated with the latest. Happy roasting!
