They are crazy knobbly and insanely sweet. Now I need to get back to pick up a second bag, soon.
* Mushrooms are so much better/cheaper from the Japanese market that it's worth making a special trip almost every week, even if that's the only thing we get. White button mushrooms alone just don't cut it.
What? I live minutes from Temecula (okay, 30-40) and I have never heard of these. I wonder where I can find them?ReplyDelete
I think the LA times article has a list. Marukai markets are carrying them, along with Mother's and some Whole Foods (not ours, though!). I'm sure somewhere around you has them - they're worth tracking down!Delete
I always shop for fruit and veggies at the Korean market! It's a great way to save a few bucks!ReplyDelete
They look so cute! I'll have to try some!ReplyDelete
temecula sweets = my derby name.ReplyDelete
I grew up in Murrieta (Temecula adjacent) and haven't heard of these! Hmmmm, looks like I'll head out to my parent's house and go to the Temecula farmer's Saturday to hunt them down :)ReplyDelete
BTW, finished the Passage and loved it, did you know there's a second book coming out?
Yes! I'm looking forward to it. Although I'll probably have to wait forever for it be available at my library ...Delete
Oh that sounds delicious! I wonder if these would be available at a Whole Foods here in Florida...ReplyDelete
Sadly, I think you're out of luck! Apparently they are super fragile and don't transport well. It looks like they don't even get sold in most of California!Delete
I guess it's kind of mean to go all nuts over something that isn't available most places. Sorry!
I found your blog by looking at Emily's and I have to say that I love reading it! Today I realized that I work about a block from the San Diego Marukai. I saw it when I left for lunch- veered across three lanes of traffic to get inside and grab some of those delicious looking oranges. WHAT A FIND. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Such an odd-looking little creature, kinda like an orange crossed with a mini pumpkin. :)ReplyDelete
