Spices for Root Beer in Calgary?
Hello. I want to try making homemade root beer and found a recipe in Saveur Magazine. I am having trouble finding the spices I need. I am looking for:
sassafras root bark
Community Natural Foods, Spice Land, Cookbook Company and Sunnyside Grocery do not carry these items. Does anyone have any other ideas of where else I should look?
I did a bit of googling and found Mountain Rose Herbs they carry all three ingredients you're looking for: http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/orde... - and they apparently ship outside the US (not often the case with a lot of online retailers).
I'd also check with weigh2go.ca AFAIK they're a Calgary co. their site doesn't mention the bark & root you're looking for but they may be willing to special order?
Good Luck - let us know if/where you get the required ingredients from and please, post your Root Beer making adventure on the Home Cooking Board :)
