Elaine Koogler did speak thusly:
>Master A's reference to long pepper reminded me...
>I'm sure you all remember how difficult it has been to acquire long pepper.
>However....you'll never guess what I found in the British Imports aisle at
>Wegman's (Chantilly, VA)! Yup...long pepper. A 4.4 oz. box of the stuff
>for $3.99...not even a very bad price for it! Needless to say, not being
>absolutely sure I could find it at Pennsic, I purchased a box. Got it home,
>opened it...the fragrance was wonderful! It had information on the box
>about all the great things you can do with it!
>Check your local grocery stores...it may show up there. Granted, Wegman's
>is a level above most grocery stores, sort of a cross between the likes of
>Trader Joe's and a Safeway. The one I go to in Virginia even has a brick
>oven where they bake breads and other goodies.

I've never had a problem getting it online.
I usually order from Adriana's Caravan, granted, they can be somewhat
pricey at times but they almost always have what I want in stock and
of excellent quality.
A quick Google shopping search shows a number of other online options:
Venimus, Saltavimus, Bibimus (et naribus canium capti sumus)
