Hey everyone,

I'm starting a Chinese cooking binge and am having a hard time finding ingredients in my vicinity (or at least at a reasonable price).

I'm looking for

Dried cloud ears
Dried silver ears
Gao cao? aka Chinese cardamom
Camellia oil
Chinkiang (black vinegar - looking for unsweetened, I can only find sweetened)
Pickled chili paste (is this better than regular chili paste?)
Preserved mustard tuber
Dou bao (dried bean curd sheets, I think it's the same as yuba)

Thanks for any suggestions!

      Amazon.com has lots of stuff we can't find locally. Prices and service are good.
