How Many?

Nitrite/Nitrate Free Bacon

Our nitrate and nitrite free bacon is what we say it is, completely free from nitrites and nitrates. Which means that it will be less pink in colour when you cook it, but will still be absolutely wondrous in any fry up or bacon sarnie.

We make our nitrate and nitrite free bacon ourselves by hand, all cured in small batches using pork loin, sea salt , spices, black pepper, and herbs (basil, marjoram, rosemary, thyme), sugar, garlic and onion.

The bacon is then air dried before gently smoking over smouldering beech and oak chips.

Each pack contains 5 to 6 rashers.

Description

Free-Range Smoked Nitrite and Nitrate Free Back Bacon

We dry-cure our nitrate and nitrite smoked back bacon from slow-grown pigs in the traditional, time-consuming way. Each cut of pork is hand rubbed with a sea salt based mix to ensure a delicate flavour and then cured for 7 days.  The meat is then matured and air-dried. This process removes the water from the pork which means that your bacon shrinks less whilst cooking and won’t give off any ‘white bits’ in the pan. Our smoked back bacon has been cold-smoked over beech and oak chips for 24 hours to give it that slightly smoky taste.

We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.
