Streaky bacon comes from the belly. It looks like pork belly doesn't it. Again, 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! Streaky bacon is great if you want to get lots of flavour into a dish, like a stew.
This streaky bacon is smoked with locally sourced maple. It's smoked for 24 hours on site and the process produces a streaky bacon that has the most wonderful flavour and streaky bacon is a pretty good starting point for flavour! 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!
