Life of a Hatch Chile – Stages & Uses

posted on August 9th, 2017 by Nicole Vuletich

It all starts in the rich soil of the valley of Hatch, New Mexico, where the life of a Hatch Chile is born. After harvest in late July and August each year, the Hatch chile takes on a new life cycle, transitioning through stages in which spicy food enthusiasts can incorporate this wondrous pepper into every dish enjoyed throughout the year. From freshly harvested to roasted and pureed, below are the many stages the Hatch chile can go through, along with some tips on adding to some of your existing favorite dishes and some new. Fresh, Unroasted Whole Hatch Chiles - Typically bought in bulk for roasting at home. Roast whole, let cool, remove the skins, and freeze in storage bags for use in dishes throughout the year.

Raw Chopped Hatch Chiles - Roasted Hatch chiles are a preferred flavor over fresh, yet you can add diced fresh Hatch chile to the cooking process of soups and… Read More

Let’s Talk Peaches

posted on July 16th, 2017 by John Savidan

One of our favorite things about summer is that it means we’ve got an abundance of organic peaches in store for you. Our favorite stone fruit ranges in flavor from the super sweet and juicy to the tart and tangy. While eating them straight from the hand, with ice cream, or in a cobbler is always appropriate, we’ve found that peaches are remarkably versatile for all types of more savory summer dishes: salsas, chutneys salads, meat marinades, and more. How to Pick the a Perfect Peach Nothing’s more disappointing than biting into a bland peach. So how do you pick the best? Well, when you shop at Bristol Farms, you’re already halfway there. That’s because our farmers leave fruit on their trees two to three weeks longer than an average grower, which means the fruit’s sugar levels and maturity are at their absolute peak. Here are a few more perfect picking tips: Good Scent Pick up a peach and give it a sniff. Good peaches smell, well, good. Like a peach… Read More

Summertime Grilled Peach Pizza Recipe

posted on July 12th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

Mmmm....pizza. It's delicious no matter the variation. No cheese, extra cheese, thin crust, Chicago deep dish, extra veggies, sans veggies...we love it all. But what we really love is pizza cooked on the grill. There's just something special about that grilled, crunchy crust covered in melty cheese and of course, all the delicious toppings. Since it's officially summer peach season and as far as we're concerned, peaches are the more the merrier in the kitchen right now, we've created an ode to the peach in pizza pie form. It's covered in mozzarella, Gorgonzola, grilled sliced peaches, arugula, red onions, and a balsamic glaze. It's heavenly to say the least. Grilled Peach Pizza Ingredients: One batch pizza dough 1/2 cup marinara 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella or Italian blend 2-3 large peaches, sliced but not peeled 2 cups packed arugula 1/3 cup Gorgonzola 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion 1/2 cup Olive oil, divided Balsamic… Read More
