Fresh made Sofrito in Philly
I'm looking for either a place where I can get pre-made Sofrito or the ingredients to make Sofrito in Philadelphia. Anyone have any leads ?
The ingredients to make your own sofrito can be found in any grocery store. If you are making Puerto Rican sofrito, it is a puree of garlic, onions, peppers, tomato, cilantro that is not cooked before use. If you are making sofrito for paella it is a cooked paste of garlic, onions, tomato and paprika. I'm sure there are as many types of sofrito as there are Spanish cuisines and individual cooks.
Thanks for your reply. I know that the garlic, onions, peppers, tomato and cilantro cover the basic flavors and have made sofrito with just that but I really wanted to try one with the traditional ajices dulces and culantro which I've never had. So was trying to find out where I could find those
