Food sources in Albuquerque?

28 posts in this topic

Depending on quanity needed, Pensey's has Mexican Vanilla although they are really proud of it based on price.

There is a thread here some where on making Vanilla extract that has a source [ I believe an Ebay Store] that had alll kinds of vanilla in fair quanities that was, I thought, more than reasonable.

Sorry that I am about 11 months behind in seeing this thread. Wish I had read it a couple weeks ago before I went to

ABQ and Soroccoro .

Thanks RobertCollins. I am confused though. Google doesn't list a Penzey's in Albuquerque. (We should be passing through in a couple of weeks.) Or must I order it online? ANd are you sure it's pure vanilla? I am now under the impression that you can't buy pure Mexican vanilla in the USA?

We stopped in Grand Junction at a Mexican mercado and bought the imitation stuff again this year.

I'm sorry, I never thought about Penzey's being in ABQ, merly that they sold the beans.http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/p-penzeysvanillabeans.html I would guess though You could find the Spice House http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices-by-category/vanilla a good sourse as well.

Hope this has helped. Oh, if you are making the trip across I 90 or such thru Chicago to I 55, I think one of their two Spice House as well as Penzeys too are there.
