Bay & Juniper cured bacon - not smoked 150g (5-7 slices per pack)


Bay and Juniper back bacon - This is for those who prefer their bacon 'green' or not-smoked. 5 to 7 slices per pack (packed by weight) .

Free-range pork loins are dry-cured with bay leaves, juniper berries, black pepper and dark muscovado sugar.  The curing process draws water out of the meat and this is continued as the bacon is air-dried for several days.  This gives a fine bacon with an excellent and distinctive flavour - without pools of watery white stuff in the pan.  

It can also be purchased as part of our bacon bundle which consists of one pack of each of bacon - Bay & Juniper cure unsmoked, Black Strap bacon and Maple back bacon.  See also our Black Strap Streaky (Winner of Taste of the West Best Bacon 2013)
