Local Source for Pink Salt??

Just wondering if there is a local source for pink salt, or Morton's Quik Cure Salt. At 1.99 per pound, it seems crazy to pay $8 additional for shipping!

  1. I have seen pink salt (not sure if it was the variety you had in mind) along with grey, black and assorted white salts for sale at The Coffee Market, 1578 Hopkins St, Berkeley. Sold by weight, also in little jars. You might want to call ahead and ask about prices; afraid I don't remember. For all I know, it might make $8 shipping look reasonable!

    1. If you are asking for "pink salt", you may get Kauai red salt, that is about $5.00 lb in Kauai. The Morton's Quik Cure salt is very hard to find, tho I have seen it in Midwestern regular grocery stores. I would check on places that sell sausage-making supplies.

      1. If you're referring to 6.25% sodium nitrite(prague #1) try First Spice Mixing Co. 195 Arkansas St. I think 10#s cost me about $7.00.

        1. I know it was pink, but I don't know if it was the type of pink salt you wanted. Rainbow grocery has it in the bulk section along with many other types of salt.
