Dry, non frozen goods. Any size. Any weight.

It's not corn flour, or corn starch, or corn meal. Masa Harina is for making tortillas and tamales. It's a dried corn that is soaked in lye dried and ground also has some shortening. I have seen it only once years ago at sovanna mall, and haven't been able to find it since.

Would like some zucchini and yellow crookneck squash, tomato hybrids like big girl and early girl, rosemary, basil, and jalapeno pepper seeds. I haven't seen these.

If you get a good price on half kilo bags of Nescafe, I'd buy it.

Naval oranges are a major US product... but not a dry good. they have them at lucky's usually.
