Once apon a time you could buy things like salt petre in your local chemist/pharmacist. When I recently decided to have a go at curing my own meats, I went for a walk around my town visiting the chemists and got responses ranging from dumbfounded looks of confusion, through questions like "Is that a new scent from Calvin Kleine?" to a line of questioning that clearly indicated that the pharmacist thought I was trying to make explosives.

So I turned to trusty Amazon (can't think why I didn't start here first) and quickly found this supply at a reasonable price.

After placing my order, the package was quickly delivered, but when I tore open the envelope, the salt petre poured onto the floor. The product was packaged in a flat plastic bottle which was placed in a padded envelope. Somehow, in transit, the lid had come off the bottle and the contents were loose inside the envelope. I contacted the supplier and they immediately sent me a replacement bottle with apologies. So I am happy to report that the supplier is excellent and I will order from them again in future.

As for the product - well this is the first time I have used salt petre, and being fairly new to curing meats, have little to compare it to. I can confirm that when making traditional corned beef, the end product is a lovely pink colour, whereas when I have made it in the past using only normal salt, it tends towards the grey. Similarly, both homemade pastrami and homemade bacon both have that appetising pink colour (the main reason for buying this product). As for its antibacterial properties - well I have submerged beef in a brine with this salt petre for just over 2 weeks in the garage (not refrigerated but reasonably cool) and no one got food poisoning, so it certainly works.

Great product. Arrived almost the next day and very secure packaging. Pity the postal amount cost twice the price of the product but otherwise no complaints. Will buy from again.

I was so glad to find this product online as I thought I would have trouble getting some. I use it for a spicey beef recipe handed down from my late father in law who was a butcher, I finally used my last salt petre before xmas and thought it would be the last time I could do it, so I'm very pleased to have found some, altho in small quantities.Very prompt delivery too!!

Arrived on time, but was very disappointed as it was not 4oz. I needed 100g for curing my pork and I only got 74g.

have written an email but have had no reply so far. So not happy.

We used the salt for the first time and were very impressed with the result. We will use it again to make that perfect ham for Christmas.
