Masa Harina, where can I buy it in Halifax (or even mail order in Canada??)
Looking to make some corn tortillas, can't seem to find Masa Harina anywhere!
I recently bought a bag of Masa Mix at the Mid-East Food centre on the corner of North and Agricola. I definitely wasn't going there to look for central american food, but they have a pretty good selection of 'ethnic' ingredients from just about everywhere. There's a helpful guy at the counter willing for suggestions of what to carry at the store as well.
This was a 2KG bag for $6.75.
I'm not in Halifax, but the Superstore in Yarmouth now carries "instant corn mix" which is really masa harina (Ingredients: corn treated with lime). I assume that any Superstore could get it in if they don't carry it already. Just don't ask for "masa harina"...they aren't going to make the connection. The brand name is Maseca, and it was about $4.50 for 2 kg. I suspect fairly expensive, but in this town beggars definitely can't be choosers.
Epicure Selections (I'm a rep) sells Masa Harina in the summer time. Its $5.95, this past summer they had tortilla presses, masa harina and corn husks for tamales.
Other places I have seen it is at costco :)
Hope you found some :)
I get at the Superstore Fredericton. It's with the Mexican groceries. I think Walmart also carries it.
