Prospector Panning Gold

  • Creator(s): Lee, Russell, 1903-1986, photographer
  • Date Created/Published: 1940 May.

Prospector, Dirt & Fine Particles of Gold

with one comment

  • Title: Prospector blowing on pan of fine dirt which contains particles of gold in order to blow the dirt away and leave the heavy gold. In this dry panning the pan is rotated until the dirt is on one side and then with a decisive toss it is thrown into the air, the light dirt being then blown away by the wind and the heavy gold being caught again in the pan. Pinos Altos, New Mexico
  • Creator(s): Lee, Russell, 1903-1986, photographer
  • Date Created/Published: 1940 May-June.

Roasted Chile and Jalapeno Peppers

leave a comment »

I came across an organic farm selling their  produce at a health food store the other day.  It was just before closing and they didn’t want to take this stuff home, so I was able to  get way more chile and jalapeno peppers than I needed at a great price.  The problem being what do you do with them?  Roasting chiles and jalapeno peppers, then freezing them is a great way to keep them around for when you want to brew up a batch of Chile Verde or Roasted Jalapeno Salsa.  My biggest tip would be, after roasting the peppers put them in a zip lock or throw a towel over container so they can steam a little.  This is a great help when peeling them before cooking.  Buen Apetito!
