Have exhausted my attempts to find saltpeter. I know it is to get the red color to the corned beef.
Any help in that department?
Any pharmacy in your area may stock saltpeter (KNO3 – Sodium Nitrate) or should be able to order it in for you. Sodium Nitrate is also used to make gunpowder for homemade smoke-bombs and missiles so you may be asked a few questions when purchasing or ordering.
