Where to buy aji dulce peppers in/and around Southern NH
I am trying to replicate my Puerto Rican friend's family sofrito recipe. I've got all the ingredients, with the exception of one! I cannot find aji dulce peppers and wondered if anyone knew where I could purchase some. I am thinking a Latino market would have them, but just not sure of the nearest one. Maybe in Manchester?
If anyone has any help or suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it!
hi guys...thank you both for your suggestions!
i just so happened to be in the international aisle in Shaw's tonight and came across a bottle of Aji Picante Peppers...says they're pickled, but I'm thinking these might be the same peppers I was looking for, except in a jar with some pickling juice. I checked the produce department for the peppers without any luck. I still might stop by the market in Manchester since I'll be there tomorrow anyway. If not, I think I might try making the sofrito with a few of these. Why not right? I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm making rice and ribs using the sofrito...can't wait!
check manchester's asian market on Maple Street - "Saigon Asian Market" or in Lowell on church street - huge international market called "Battambang Supermarket".
good luck, that's one ethnic food I haven't done much, but would like to. I know there are many in Lawrence and some in Lowell so you might it.
