I heard about these coquito nuts (supposedly like tiny coconuts?) but information on them is elusive even on the Internet. Any suggestions on where I might find these adorable treats? Any confirmation on the nut stores in Kensington market? Thanks!
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
Many folks feel that mussels are a restaurant dish—something to order off the menu. But they’re surprisingly affordable at the market and quick and easy to cook at home. They’re also a great option for those looking for sustainable seafood choices.
