Omani Lemons

While in Fez, Moracco, I had a lamb dish made with dried lemons called Omani Lemons. You poke holes in the dried lemon and cook in a lamb or beef stew. The chef told me the lemons are used in Persian, Turkish, and Iraqi cooking. Anyone know of local source for such lemons? I can get them mailorder from a spice dealer in NY. But shipping is more expensive than the lemons.
