    Used Prague Powder #1 to cure pork loin to make peameal bacon. You can only buy peameal bacon in Canada so found a recipe which needs this curing salt to make it. Turned out great! American Spice Company was easy to deal with and they shipped it right away.

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Apr 2016

    Good to finally find a source of this curing salt. Thanks. Next time maybe ship in a box--the bubble wrap envelope allowed the corners of the plastic container to get mashed and dented! The shipping price charged would allow for a small box I believe.

  10. Good business!
