Need some Sassafras or File powder and cant find here

Anyone know where I can find sassafras or file powder to buy in big box stores? I found it online but these guys want as much to ship it as it costs for the dang spice. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

Give them a try. We order lot's of jazz from them. me and a some pals lump our order together to cut down on cost. Pal Bill Whitney orders every month. (Buffalo Spice) I can arrange a order and then ship it off to you folk if ya like. PM me if interested.

Re: Need some Sassafras or File powder and cant find here

Seems like Kroger always has it in the spice section. Small jugs though. You needing huge amounts or something? Why dont you just use some deslimed okry? Back in the good old days the Cajuns supposedly only make File Gumbo in the winter when Okry was out of season. Or that whut they claim on the Gumbo Pages anyway. Do you know how to deslime? If you just got to have File Powder in large amounts check with Farmer Brothers Coffee Company. They have the best. There is also a bunch of stuff in there other than sassafras leaves. You might need a pal in the retail food bizness to order it for you. Not sure they sell straight to the public but they might. Heres the link.
