Never-ending quest

We bagged some Lana's sweet and sour sauce, unobtainable for almost a year, at least anywhere we looked. This little condiment, made by the local egg-roll people (the mysterious Lana's Enterprises), gets its kick from serrano chiles and plenty of ginger. Fiesta failed us in that it didn't have a Mexican lime-squeezer (they all eventually fall apart where they're joined), but Breed & Co. (the former Everett) hardware did have one, for a not-low price. At least we came home from Fiesta with some Sabroza salsa verde and an armload of gossipy magazines straight from el otro lado.

Please elucidate on where I might find some of the elusive Lana's Sweet and Sour Sauce, which HEB quit carrying several years ago. I saw a post saying some had been found, but not saying WHERE! Send REPLY to Hollis@Ev1.net

It was from Central Market at 38th Street, at which time several =
were purchased, some of which are still here on the squirrel shelf. Lana's Enterprises, PO Box 17872, Austin 78760 is the address on the jar, and there *is* a number in the telephone directory, but no one ever answered. The date
of the entry was when the quantities were purchased. It was with other sauces,including curry sauces, etc., and maple syrup. The mailbox for which you gave an e-mail addy bounced the message: "inbox quantity exceeded" or something like that
