I am wondering if anyone knows of a store not too far a field that carries freeze dried fruits and veg, I am looking for freeze dried corn specifically. Just to specify it must be freeze dried, along the lines of what just tomatoes sells see here. http://www.justtomatoes.com/jtstore/p...

Thank you

      I love the corn from Just Tomatoes! I have bought freeze dried corn here in Montreal made by Sensible Foods: http://sensiblefoods.com/buy-online
      You can find them at health food stores, I have bought them many times at Teva (Decarie near Queen Mary).

        Thank you for the suggestions, unfortunately Teva no longer has the corn as it did not sell well for them. I can order a case but I wanted a small quantity for some experiments before ordering stuff i might not need. Le baron's a bit faqr-out but looks like i'll have no choice, none of the health food type stores I normally hit have freeze dried fruit/veg.

          You could also try calling Mountain Equipment Co-op, though that may not be convenient, either. There used to be another Le Baron camping equipment place on Notre-Dame W. but I'm not sure they're still open - try calling 514 381 4231. Good luck!

        I found a selection of freeze dried fruit (strawberries and I can't remember what else) at Adonis recently.
