The smell of fall

Despite the 100 degree temperatures, you know fall is near with the arrival of the Hatch chiles. These green chiles are from Hatch, New Mexico and are the best green chiles you can find. However, they are only available fresh two weeks a year. You buy a case and they roast them for you on the spot (the photo is of the roaster). Normally we buy a case to freeze them to have them all year long. You can smell the roasting chiles as soon as you pull into the parking lot. They smell so good and you realize that smell signals that fall, and slightly less hot weather, is just around the corner.
