sichuan peppercorns

Chunceladon | Jun 3, 200510:07 PM

Does anyone know where to get Sichuan peppercorns. I live in the East Bay so both Oakland & SF are readily accessible. I had been buying these for years but several years ago the FDA banned importation due to concern about these little guys infecting (I believe) citrus trees.I have heard that the ban has been lifted but my local Ranch 99 carried them for a brief time and then told me they had to return them. Any leads? On another note,I'm new to this site and maybe have been missing something but cannot find a way to get back to my place on the listings after visiting a thread and after returning to the top of the page have no idea where I left off. Help! Thanks.
