Pick It and Stick It (In Your Freezer)
Ah, the fall season is soon upon us, and with it comes the smell of roasting chile in the air. But some of us are a bit more particular, no? We have preferences in quality, shape and, dare I say, size? Why settle for a random assortment when you can find the perfect fit for your life? Don’t worry, my friends, because Big Jim Farms Chile U-Pick event is officially a go, starting in September. On Saturday, Sept. 7 from 9am until 6pm, you can go out and find the exact chile for your life. At $1.50 per pound, you’ll struggle to not walk away with a ton, though discounts are available for larger purchases; pay just $35 for a 40-pound sack. So go get your fill and stock up. Stoke the chile envy of your neighbors with a well-stocked fridge. (Dan Rayne Pennington)
