"Fresh" dried Pinto Beans in Los Angeles?

EarlyBird | Apr 26, 2012 11:11 AM

All,

I never really appreciated the need for dried beans to be "fresh," until I made some classic refried beans with a bag of dried pintos my sister brought home with her from a trip to New Mexico. They were so tender and tasty.

Though "fresh dried beans" sounds like a contradiction in terms, I mean to say dried beans that are not old, having been dried fairly recently.

Does anyone know where in Los Angeles I can find "new" or "fresh" dried pinto beans? I'm going to make a batch with my carnitas on Cinco de Mayo.

Gracias.
