Updated: Jul 12

They will likely become familiar over time, but I will do my best to list as many non-typical ingredients as I can and where I have found them. This is meant to be an active and changing list so come back as needed for more and updated information!

Sprouts is not a shop I use much, but I know lots of folks who do and they have a lovely selection of the items we need.

The Grocery Outlet is not a place I go when I need a specific item, but they do have some interesting things for excellent value if you're open to exploring.
