Default Potasium Nitrate

I am interested in experimenting with home made nutrients and was delighted to learn that KNO3 is a highly regarded source of N because I happen to have a 5 lb bottle left over from another life.

Problem is that if I use enough KNO3 to get the N I want, the K goes out of the ball park.

Is there a way to remove the excess K? I don't understand how it can be used as a source of N if this is always the case.

I also have a bottle of Nitric acid and was wondering if I can use this directly as part of the N and use the KNO3 as the K source.
