Munched these for snacks as a kid and found them easily at grocery stores. But can't find them now, decades later... I'd actually like to use them quasi-medicinally in a ginseng chicken soup I'm making.
Admittedly, I've only tried Whole Foods, Rainbow, and Berkeley Bowl, but I was surprised at the completely blank looks "Chinese red dates" drew. On googling I see they are also apparently known as jujubes, which I wasn't asking for. I'm avoiding Chinatown (SF or Oakland) b/c of parking hell and wouldn't know where to go anyway, but if anyone has a specific store name...
Thanks so much!
