where to find ...... chicken chorizo, frozen basil

since TJ is no longer carrying the delicious chicken chorizo sausages, I wonder if any one has found a good source in NYC?
Also I need to replenish my frozen basil supply from our garden. Is there any place in NYC that sells frozen basil?

  1. Funny you should ask--TJ's sells cubes of frozen basil that you can use individually, and they seem to keep forever. (They also have frozen cilantro.)

    Now if anyone knows of a place to buy a more extensive range of frozen herbs--so common in France, impossible to find here!--I'd love to know.

      so far I haven't found them at any of the local TJs. I'll check the Manhattan.

    2. eventually TJs and the local market started carrying Dorat frozen herb cubes. Good stuff for the time being.
      But I'd still like to get some recs for Sp. chorizo in Manhattan, chicken or trad pork.
