Buy Curing Salt (Prague Powder 1)
Curing salt comes in many types, but always with the same purpose: used to facilitate food preservation and extend shelf life while pickling the spice. The most common salt of these is Pink Salt, also known as Instacure / Prague Powder #1. This salt, unlike pink himalayan salt, is pink due to a small amount of added red dye, traditionally to stop it being confused from tablesalt.
Our Curing Salt is mainly table salt, with around 6.25% sodium nitrate dried and added in. It is best used for meats that require short curing times and can be cooked and eaten shortly after the curing process. Sausages, Pastrami, Corned Beef and others are perfect for this.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.

I've been an occasional customer of yours for a few years now, and after receiving a product update email, I remembered that there were some new spices I'd like try. But strangely enough I no longer had an account with you and you had no record of my email. I enjoy your product, but hopefully next time you wont lose my account info.
