Buying jalapenos for canning
I'm looking to pickle several jars of jalapenos soon and I'm wondering where the best place in the Boston area would be to buy them in large quantities. Most supermarkets only seem to have a small basket at a time. My first thoughts were Russo's and maybe Super 88. Anyone have any experience with this?
I've only pickled my home-grown, but it seems to me that I've often seen a pretty good quantity of them at the Packard's Corner Star Market. Not all the time, though.
You might talk to the produce manager at your local supermarket and ask if they can special-order you a few pounds. Should be possible.
i buy them weekly at haymarket, usually about $1.00 per pound, about 1/3 of the price they are at shaw's.
