Makin' Bacon

Quality Bacon for under £1.30lb ...

I've been making bacon for sometime mainly to get the flavour and quality I want - no white residue in the frying pan in my house! To make it from scratch takes a bit of research as the curing agents involved are dangerous even in small quantities, but pre-blended cure mixes, that are readily available, make the production of bacon at home safe, simple and quick.

The bacon cures available from are supplied with full instructions and make it really simple: apply the cure to some belly or loin pork, rub in, place in a bag in the fridge for about 5 days, wash, slice, then eat. You'll never buy bacon again!

Cost? Well a pack to make 30kg of bacon costs about £7 add the cost of your meat and you could be makin' bacon for under £1.30 per lb.
