One of the guys in the beanfields had a bumper crop of deArbol chiles and I snatched up all he had.
Large quantities of large chiles are difficult to dry here but these smaller de Arbols were easy enough. We dried them right on the floor of a barn. They’re dry enough to use but still soft and pliable. They are a little shorter than than the same chiles we get from Mexico but they’re much hotter. I was humbled by them!
We’ll have them at the farmers market in about two weeks and online about a week after that.
