Asian groceries: Szechuan preserved vegetables

  • s

I need a couple of ingredients for Chinese cooking. Has anyone seen Szechuan preserved vegetables in the Philly area? I've tried a couple of Asian (Korean) groceries, but no luck so far.
I'm also looking for a new supply of another Szechuan ingredient, but apparently it's been driven underground by a ban from the Dept. of Agriculture?

  1. go to any chinese market in chinatown. you will find them. the trick to finding a specific cuisines ingrediant is (keep this to yourself now) going to an ethnic market that stocks that food. korean markets may have some chinese ingrediants but chinese markets are really the best place to look. good luck.

    oh yeah if you want to find 'that' ingrediant ask for hua jiao
