Where to buy pink salt?

Anyone know where I can get pink salt - used for curing meats - in NY?

  1. Try Aphrodisia on Bleecker St., off Cornelia.They carry the full gamut of herbs, spices, nuts and teas. It's one of the gems of NYC!

    1. It's not the kind of thing Aphrodisia is likely to have. Food Emporium is usually better stocked than the other chains, but this kind of thing - along with canning supplies, pickling salt, etc. is scarce in the city, especially these days. Chinatown might be a good another bet, though I only remember seeing plain saltpeter itself. But then I wasn't actually looking for it.

      1. I have seen it at Whole Foods in San DIego, perhaps NYC Whole Foods would also have it. Have you also tried Zabars?

        I just checked the Dean and Deluca web site and they have a pink salt from HAwaii.

        1. I think I saw pink salt at Williams Sonoma in Columbus Circle.

          1. I bought pink sea salt at a place in the Hamptons (which has a Manhattan location as well) Citarella. It wasn't very pricey as I recalled and came in a small plastic tub. I've been using it liberally in everything and still have a fairly full container. Good luck!
