I need to find nitrate/phosphate free bacon. I've tried Annaly and theres no local bacon its just the prepackaged stuff. Maybe I am asking for too much but I was always able to get it in STT at gourmet gallery. I don't care what it costs. Would LOVE to buy local bacon. I get all my meat at Annaly including pork but they don't have bacon... I don't get it.

I also need a restaurant supply store - need a dozen oil bottles for my flavored oils - broken most of them. Kmart had these but they are discontinued and I don't like the look of the cruets and cant do the $20 ones at the nice stores.

Need tapioca flour - I feel like it should be here somehwhere as red mill makes it and we have that brand of coconut flour and almond flour. Also flax meal and - grass fed butter. Like the bacon I've looked at kmart, CUL, Plaza, Quality foods, stop and shop. I can order it if I have to but really finding I am super limited to GOOD heathy ingredients here. STT was just a trip to gourmet gallery. It cost a fortune but then again so does cancer - so we try to eat pretty clean and last month I started paleo diet which is really strict about additives. WHAT a difference - I feel like a million bucks and lost a bunch of weight.

Thanks in advance.

Buying bottles for things like oils, tinctures, sauces, etc. at retail is an exercise in frustration. (Believe me, I've been there.) Most of the herbalists/saucemakers/handmade cosmetics folks I'm aware of order them online from places like Specialty Bottle, Wholesale Supplies Plus, SKS Bottles & Packaging, and similar manufacturers/distributors. It looks like shipping here shouldn't be a problem from checking their sites -- I'm pulling together some ordering at the moment, so I'll let you know if there are problems.

With regard to uncured bacon, well, if you have a smoker you can make it yourself, as long as you are flawless in handling and smoking it at appropriate temperatures (NO low-temp smoking, which as far as I can tell is impossible here without a commercial gear setup anyway) at every step of the process. I've been making bacon (insert joke here) for about five years and I use curing salt (ordered online and shipped here no problem). As the smoker just got here and I broke it in with some chile beef jerky, after the pork shoulder I'm thinking about a big batch of bacon. Need to source pork belly though. 🙂

Hey A&A plaza east has some of what you are looking for. I had to go there on the way home so I looked specifically for: tapioca flour (located at the bottom of an end aisle around the corner from the section with all the bobs red mill stuff), bobs red mill flax seed meal (with other red mill stuff in the cereal aisle) and grass fed butter - anchor butter which I googled to find out if it's grass fed and from what I cound, it is. Hope they are all still there when you go!!

See Cats posts.
She cures her own bacon with cure(which is prague powder #1 curing salt which is sodium nitrate).
There are as she points out other ways but there a bit more difficult.

curing without nitrates
