Looking for saltpeter (to cure bacon)

SxCx | Dec 8, 2007 06:11 AM

I'm taking a stab at home-cured bacon, but can't find this optional yet desired ingredient. I've tried many a drug and health food store, they're all very confused.

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on this stuff? I only need a teaspoon. I found another thread that recommended something in Woodbridge but that's way too far (looking for something TTC accessible).

Anyone? Alternate names: potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
