Known for its preservative qualities, citric acid can be added to drinks, ice cream,jams, tomato based products (like pasta sauce), canned fruit, and yogurt. And for large projects, don’t get your pickles in a bunch, we offer several sizes of citric acid and cook books, too – we’ll be sure to help you complete your canning project. Or when you’re feeling the need for something a little sour, add a little citric acid to your favorite food or drinks to give it a little cheek squinting tartness.


Sour salt works best in recipes that also include sugar but the objective is to create a pleasant balance between the sweet and sour such as in cold beet borscht or a lemony cheese cake. Also good for canning, pickling and sausage making.

    Sour Salt or citric acid is delicious when "salted" on popcorn. You will become addicted to this new way of eating popcorn. I also use sour salt in my ice tea, in salad dressings, with sugar on fruit and in so many other applications in the kitchen. I never have lemons when I need themn so I substitute sour salt.

  8. Great for enhancing certain flavors & more

    Posted by SharpmaMa on 12th Aug 2011

    I began using sour salt for a Russian cabbage soup from a friend's grandma (a delicious recipe).

    I also use it to acidulate water to prevent oxidation & discoloration on artichokes during preparation.

    A few years later, I began using it to enhance recipes containing certain ingredients in a mixture, such as potato salad tartar sauce, sour cream based
    dips, etc.

    It adds a great deal if zing w/o the extra salt, but do add slowly so you don't overdo it!

  9. best for cleaning up hard water!

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Jul 2011

    i use it to clean the coffee maker, electric kettle, shower heads and anywhere else where hard water deposits collect. use one ounce of citric acid powder per quart of water. it is like magic.
