I have not heard mention of this powder since my youth in Northwestern
Pennsylvania. My uncle had a hunting cabin and would dry-cure game using
Prague powder. I do know that it contained sodium chloride, sodium nitrite
and sodium nitrate. Your local butcher may have a similar powder -Morton's
Tender Quick and more input on dilution and availability.

Our HistoNet colleagues may also have more information on it's histological

I hope that this is of some assistance!
