Dried Pigeon Peas in Seattle?

Larry_B | Feb 4, 2010 07:30 AM

I'm starting to dig into Puerto Rican food and can only find canned pigeon peas, not dried. I think the canned ones get a bit mushy in Arroz con Gandules, so I'd like to find dried ones. I've checked Big John's PFI, Oak Tree Market, Central Market, Madision Market, Fred Meyer and several QFCs with no luck.

I know Goya distributes them because you see them in every supermarket in the NYC area. I'll probably bring some back with me the next time I go to New York but I'd love to find a local supply.

BTW, thanks to the PNW board, I was able to find culantro for my sofrito.
