Frozen Banana Leaves

I'm making Kalua pork for my first time next weekend, and I have been gathering up things I will need.
one of the more difficult things for me to find are Banana Leaves.
I found some at a local Asian Supermarket but they are frozen. Do all Banana Leaves come frozen?
If I use the frozen Leaves is there anything to watch out for?


  • Frozen are perfectly fine. No worries at all.

    The ones on banana trees are unfrozen. :D

    Just kidding. They should work just fine. I have found them frozen at Mexican grocery stores in the past as well.

    Frozen should work fine or you can go to a florist and get some ti leaves fresh.  Here in Florida the fresh are not a problem.
