Looking for Yucatecan "limas" in the North Bay

suthernbell Feb 15, 2010 09:53 AM

While in the Yucatan last winter I took a lovely cooking class where we learned to cook "sopa de lima." I would love to recreate this dish for a dinner party this weekend, but I don't know if I can actually find true "limas" in the U.S.

I know there is a sizable Yucatecan population in San Rafael and was wondering if anyone knew of a good Mexican market in that area that might have Yucatecan produce?

Any help is appreciated!

    Sweet limes are fairly common hereabouts. You might try Mi Tierra, 175 Belvedere Street, San Rafael.

      And to piggyback on bell's question, does anyone know if limas are available in SF? I just got back from the Yucatan and am now looking for various Yucatecan ingredients. Anyone seen sour oranges?
