I'm looking for lumpfish caviar. The black, cheap stuff to make caviar pie.
Where can I find it??? TJ's has a 1oz can of inferior brand for $20. Don't think even the cheap stuff is low cost anymore but it that's what we want we usually ignore the price for that one item.

    Hi, P! I'll be headed to Harvest Ranch Market in EC this week. I'll check for it there, and let you know.

      Thanks, Phee. Never thought of BevMo but they have most everything else and a bag of chips. I haven't seen any at Sprouts or Whole Foods. I wouldn't use sevruga for pie either. And thanks all. I'm watching the board.

        Costco carries segruva, you get 2 oz. for $69.00, I wouldn't use this to make a pie. TJ's stuff is totally opposite the quality. I've seen lumpfish at most super markets like Vons, Ralphs etc. Also, check PL Seafoods.

          I have recently seen two different brands for under $8 a jar at a Shop Rite market.

            As to your subject question, I can't find lapsang souchong tea at supermarkets anymore.

                to Frank re lapsang, you might try the 99 Ranch Mkt or some of the smaller Asian mkts of Convoy.
