Lentil Shortage. Has anyone heard? ...or just rumor?

Cheese Boy | Oct 5, 2006 09:38 PM

Can this be? Or is this just a way to get the price of this innocent little legume to quadruple over the next several months? Did over-saturated soil (with all the rains) or extreme heat have any effect on the lentil harvest somewhere? Lentil prices are relatively *low* right now, but scarce availablilty will definitely change that. What's the word on the street out there?
