Santa Fe is beautiful year round, yielding four perfect seasons to enjoy. Impending fall is one of my favorites. The chamisas are blooming, the temperature is perfect, the festivals are upon us and it's chile roasting season. It doesn't matter if your pumping gas or furniture shopping, everywhere you go the scent of fresh roasting chile is in the air. It's intoxicating. It only lasts about a month so if you want to enjoy chile year round you've got to buy it, roast it, peel it and freeze it now. That's exactly what we did yesterday. A satchel and a half and three hours of diligent peeling gave us about thirty bags to tuck away in our freezer for later.
