Local source for pink salt / instacure #1

  • 8

Anyone know where to find it? Bonus for a source north of the city :-)

Thanks!

  1. Apparently most roads lead to Christina's in Inman Square - here's last year's thread:

    And here are a couple of older threads:

    1. I got some at Williams Sonoma at the mall in Salem NH. Might have been more expensive than bulk from Christina's, but a lot closer for me.

      1. Thanks to both of you. I didn't think Christina's had it, based on one of those older threads that I had found.

        WS is very convenient for me -- I'll try that first.

        1. #1 and Mortons Curing Salt are much easier to get locally than #2. In addition to Christina's Bass Pro has it and some other sporting goods shops will have it.

          1. Just found one more source: On a whim I called Karl's Sausage Kitchen in Peabody. They said they'd sell me 1/2oz (which is really all I need), but first I had to have a phone call with the butcher to discuss safe handling practices. Can't blame 'em for covering their bases and attempting to keep their customer base around for a while :-)
