Fermented black (soy) beans??

erica | Mar 26, 2008 10:45 AM

I want to make the Bittman shrimp and black bean recipe from today's Times. My question is about the black beans. Are these sold loose by the pound as well as in glass jars? Can I find them in midtown (far east 50s or within wallking distance) or should I just head for Chinatown? And in Chinatown..what section of a market? Are they kept under refrigeration?
