The sound of water woke me up last night. It was running through the pipes in the house and coming down from the sky. My husband was running the sprinklers because it had not rained. Mother Nature decided to pull a funny with rain. Nothing like paying to water the yard for no reason. Oh well. At least things will be nice and green for a few days. It will go with all the greenness in Hatch Chile Zucchini Bread.
Hatch chile season has arrived. A produce company gave the first notice. I had to make something with them as soon as I saw a photo of those tasty green chile peppers. Luckily there were some in my freezer. I’ve hoarded them since the last batch I received.
Finding hatch chiles in Georgia is difficult. It’s best to order them online. Just do an internet search and you’ll see companies selling them. Locating zucchini is ridiculously easy. Markets will be over flowing with them. Your friends may be trying to unload their garden’s bounty too.
Bread Bakers theme this month is peppers. It’s another reason I dug into my hatch chile stash. Plus my serrano and jalapeño plants are doing so poorly. This hot and dry summer has stressed my container garden tremendously. My pepper plants have leaves and little flowers yet hardly any peppers.
Hatch Chile Zucchini Bread is sweet with a kick of heat. I used hot hatch chiles that were roasted, peeled, and seeded. Heat and flavor is underlying and come in at the end. What you taste first is typical zucchini bread. Then comes in the unique pepper flavor and heat. It sure is a nice way to celebrate this special hatch chile pepper season.
