Canned Salsify

Not that all I eat is canned food but another great treat from my Montreal days was Salsify. I have grown it but frankly the fresh veg is less fun to cook with than the canned..it is a butter magnet!

For a number of years, Pusateri's stocked it but no more. I think the brand they used was called Toussaint and I googled another brand from Belgioum called Rolland's, but saw no distributor.

Has anyone come across these recently in the Toronto area?
