where to buy pink curing salt?

I've been experimenting with curing meats, etc. recently but have been unable to find pink curing salt. Does anyone know where I might find it locally? I've tried YDFM, Cook's Warehouse, the Buford Highway Farmer's Market, Shield's, and my local Publix and Kroger.

I know it can be purchased online, but I'd prefer not to spend $5-10 for shipping on a $2 purchase.

Thanks

    maybe White Provisions (Howell Mill Rd) or Savor (Peachtree Rd)?

      I don't know if any of the new charcuterie purveyors would sell you some- Spotted Trotter (at the St Phillips Sat Market) or Pine St Market.

      I get mine from Allied Kenco. I guess the shipping is a bummer, but I'd burn that much in time/gas hunting for some in town. I've gotten to a point where it's just easier to mail order stuff and pay the shipping.

      Now I just need to find time to use some of the pkg that I bought at the first of the year.

              Very cool. Did you serve cold a la the French Laundry recipe?

                served a la Le Bernardin - cold, on toast, and hidden beneath thinly pounded tuna sashimi! - http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4147/5...
