Lookinng for Salt Pork

blackbookali Nov 12, 2011 09:05 AM

Just made a few calls to Trader Joe's and Alexander's Meats and coming up with blanks. Know where I can find this stuff?

    Try a major retailer; Albertsons, Safeway, Smiths, Vons, Food4Less etc... or a Mexican supermarket like Cardenas. My Dad used it in his baked beans, and he never had a problem finding it in Northern CA. I just saw some the other day, might have been at a Food4Less.

      I've always been able to find it at Ralph's

        Yup. I think it's Hormel. Right there next to the bacon in all the stores I've been in. Got some when I'd stumbled across a fried SP with milk gravy recipe in our old Fannie Farmer. Not for us old guys more than once or twice a year, but DAMN it was good!

        I get it at Whole Foods. Even some of the smaller ones by me (Santa Monica) have it with the bacon and other packaged meats.

            Stater Bros usually has Hormel.
