Kaffir lime leaves (Thai cooking) restricted?

KyMikey | Jun 2, 2008 11:11 AM

Just found out by calling one of the biggest foodie oulets in the Midwest (they have EVERYTHING) that kaffir lime leaves are for the most part unavailable now because they are on the FDA-restricted list. Hmmm...not sure what that's about, but it looks like I'll have to grow my own miniature kaffir lime tree in order to get the real thing. Has anyone else heard this?
