Lotus leaves, wine sediment

Pan | Oct 18, 2001 02:23 AM

Dear Fellow Chowhounds:

I am looking for dried lotus leaves (presumably the same as lily pads?. I've never looked for them before. Can I get them at the Hong Kong Supermarket on Pike St. and East Broadway? If not, where? And do they have a Chinese name I should look for?

Also, a Chinese recipe calls for the sediment that remains after wine is made. Unfortunately, the cookbook does not give a Chinese name for the stuff, so I have no idea how or where to look for it. Please help if you can. BTW, this is for my father, who can't have red wine or grape juice, though white wine and rice wine are fine for him.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
