That are RARE further North!

Now the question is: do you eat the peppers and what do you think of them?;f
I don't eat them often but they have their uses.

A good way to use them was taught to me by a Mexican (in Mexico). Take a small jar (like a baby food jar) and get the inside wet. Pour salt into the jar and let it coat the sides. Gently pour out the excess salt leaving the salt stuck to the bottom and sides. Fill the jar with chile pequines. Allow to sit for week. The peppers are then ready to be used on eggs, tacos, etc. They have a wonderful salty-hot taste. They are great with beer, too. ;f
