I live light years away from a grocery source that sells Taramosalata but I crave it. Found it available through Amazon from a midwestern international market and ordered it. However, I had a call back from a rep there whose call I haven't yet returned, informing me that if it is sent standard shipping there's a chance of spoiling. I'm thinking that because it's cold everywhere now, even in Florida where I am...along with the acid in the form of lemon juice it contains...it should be ok. I would like some input before I call the guy back and make the order definite. Of course i COULD pay to have it shipped faster, but there's something galling about paying $4 for something and $25 for shipping.
