Canadian vs. US groceries

Karieann | Jul 21, 2007 09:25 AM

I'm a Canadian who lived in the States for 25 years and I just recently moved back to Canada and I'm having some trouble adjusting to some of the grocery products (or lack of them).

- Butter is rarely (or way more expensively) sold in sticks in Canada. How do you bake with it? I was used to using the tbsp. marks in the paper wrappers.

- Can you buy pre-packaged soft corn tortillas in Canada? Everybody seems to have flour ones, but I haven't found corn ones yet (crispy fried ones, but not soft).

- In the States sweetened condensed milk comes in tins that are almost 400 ml; in Canada the tins are only 300 ml. SHould I be adapting my AMerican recipes?

- Can you buy Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice mixtures in Canada? I have found several simliar things, but not the "regular" kind that serves four and comes in a small, rectangular box and in either the longer or quicker cooking versions.

- Old English cheese in a jar?

- Lemon flavoured yogurt?

Thanks for your help. :-)
