North Park Produce in San Diego -- Good finds

Dumkling | Jul 31, 2006 10:12 PM

My father, visiting for the weekend, found some good stuff at North Park Produce:
Fresh garbanzo beans. Like fava beans, you have to shell them. We cooked them with olive oil and garlic. Had a green pea flavor. Very good, a lot of work. (They also have green almonds in produce)
In the jam section, he found young walnuts in syrup. These are beautiful sliced, you could make some interesting pastry with them.

We also like the kebab meat, seasoned ground lamb? Makes flavorful burgers.
Good Mediterranean style cucumbers. What they called an Afghani melon, the sticker called a Sharlynne. Crunchy, somewhat sweet.
We bought the green coffee beans once and roasted them on the stovetop. Fun, but I'll stick to Peet's.
They always seem to have lamb testicles in the meat section, if that's your thing.

What else have you found here that I might not have noticed?
