Chile Harvest in Santa Fe

Chile Roaster

Roasted Chiles
Autumn is harvest time for the New Mexican chile.  You can smell the aroma of the chiles being roasted all over Santa Fe this time of year.  Before the chile season comes to an end, I have to buy a bushel for roasting, so I can freeze them and have an ample supply to last me though winter

Autumn Fig Salad

Figs with Baby Greens
Inspired by the mission fig and the autumn landscape of northern New Mexico, I delicately combined some baby greens, walnuts, dill, and Manchego cheese to make a salad.  For a final touch, I drizzled on some agave nectar to add a touch of sweetness.

The autumn landscape in northern New Mexico is stunning with the chamisa's golden yellow flowers blanketing the hillside.
