Back Bacon (unsmoked)

Back bacon comes from the loin part of the pig. This is the important part. All our bacon is dry cured, not brined. What does this mean? A salt & sugar mix cures the bacon in about a week. As it is dry cured, there isn't much water in it so when you cook it, it doesn't disintegrate to nothing with lots of those white bits on top of your bacon. That comes from brining it - essentially pumping salt water into the bacon joint to cure it quickly. The white bits is the salt water coming out! Back bacon is your classic breakfast bacon without the rind. The thing that you'll notice about this bacon is it just feels different compared to bacon you get from the supermarket. It's just more meaty because it has a lot less water in it! Less water = more flavour!
