Great Finds at La Finca Tortillería in Fruitvale

rubadubgdub reports dried hibiscus flowers for $4.99 a pound, a candied sweet potato dessert with a thin sugar coating, a huge selection of dried chiles, still-warm corn tortillas, and a handmade cazuela that would be a perfect pot for making mole. chefj notes that La Finca also stocks fresh masa of all kinds.
