Default Fruit Fresh (absorbic acid) - looking for...

Hi all,
On a quest for and need Fruit Fresh (absorbic acid), a substitute or
opinion for the recipe below.
The problem is I don't know where to begin... drugstore, hardware store.
Most neighbors have no idea - so I'll ask my neighbors online.
Any help would be appreciated.

Vitamin C tablets. Grind up a 500 mg tablet and mix with a little
sugar. But I don't think your recipe really needs ascorbic acid because
of all the lemon juice. (I'd substitute fresh lime juice)

Best regards,
Bob

I once lived for a time in NYC and, surprisingly, while one can find
almost anything there, some things remain elusive.

In most other areas I've lived I could always find Fruit Fresh in the
supermarket, usually in the same area where they stock Sure-Jel and
other canning items.

Most good "old-fashioned" hardware stores that have a section devoted to
canning supplies (jars, canning vessels, etc.) also carry Fruit Fresh
and pectin.
