Where to buy dried hominy?
I've been looking for a place to buy dried hominy in Chicago. Preferably from a bulk bin, but will buy it pre-packaged.
Anyone know a good place?
I'm up in Edgewater, but willing to travel for a mega-awesome store.
(P.S. Mega awesome = has lots of other unique/hard-to-find food stuff.)
If you're in Edgewater, you're in luck, because they have dried hominy at the Cuban grocery store called Unique, and also at the Mexican/Balkan grocery story called Devon Market, both on Devon Ave in the block immediately east of Clark, on the dividing line btwn Edgewater and Rogers Park.
1440 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL
i've recently purchsed some at supermercado, specifically one on west north ave (around 3300w, perhas?), but sorry i cant remember then name. i'm actually cooking some right now, and man it's taking forever! i soaked it overnight, and it's now been simmering for 4h+ and the kernels have just started to pop. did i do something wrong?
It's sold at Cermak Produce on Kedzie at Bearteau, 2 blocks north of Irving Park Road, in frozen, dried, and canned form. I especially like to use the fresh frozen variety in soups, YUM!
Oh and while you are there, pick up a can of Juanita's Chicken Posole, really fantastic stuff!!....tastes nearly as good as homemade and more like a New Mexican style posole. Juanita's Posole is one of the very few canned soups that I will eat as I prefer everything made from scratch.
