Polenta in DFW

randyjl Apr 21, 2012 04:30 PM

Does anyone know where I can get the prepared "chubs" of polenta in Dallas? And is it just slice and fry straight from the package?

    If you're talking about the thick plastic wrapped "tubes" of polenta, they can be bought in every market in Dallas.

    What constitutes a "chub"?

      Thick plastic tubes. Sorry, but not every market, if you are talking about grocery store. I have looked at Kroger and Tom Thumb.

        Tom Thumb has had it in the past, in the display area under the deli counter. I haven't looked in a while since I liked it enough to make my own.

          Sunflower Market has them for a decent price most of the time.

          World Markets carry them.

            I know for sure Central Market (Dallas) sells them because I buy them there.

              Kroger doesn't necessarily have them. I was looking for that last week. May have better luck in their "Kroger Signature" format.

              EDIT: Yes they are just slice and fry after wiping them dry just a bit.

                I saw it on the shelf at Fiesta today. $3.29.

                  Just buy polenta or grits and make your own. You can add flavor while you make it. Then spread it out on a half sheet. It will firm up over night in the fridge, then cut it the way you want it.

                    Much easier to just buy it.
