Our smoked streaky bacon is high quality and carefully cured. It is very different from varieties which tend to shrivel and release a lot of water. Quality meat tastes better, and we have always believed that high-welfare, free range meat is worth the effort.
Our free range pork comes from the best, local suppliers. We have always been very selective. We source local meat from farms in Wiltshire and Somerset, and make sure that we get the very best and most sustainable breeds for the season. At every stage, we promote traditional, sustainable farming practices that make for happy pigs and delighted customers. Free range practices make for happier, healthier pigs and result in a far more delicious product. Add this smoked streaky bacon to your basket and we’re sure you will agree.
Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our smoked streaky bacon is immaculate. It is skilfully prepared in time-honoured, traditional fashion. We never take short cuts and our insistence on such methods is central to maintaining the quality you have come to expect from The Black Farmer.
|SHELF LIFE||5 Days from date of delivery|
|STORAGE ADVICE||While we’d be surprised if you could resist the temptation to enjoy immediately, please keep refridgerated unless you intend to eat it right away! Otherwise all our quality meat is suitable for freezing to preserve its taste and texture, meaning you can cook and serve it when you fancy. Once it’s been frozen, please thaw your meat slowly and thoroughly, ideally in the fridge overnight. We vacuum-pack our meat to naturally extend its freshness and make it suitable for home-freezing.|
|PACKAGING||This pack contains approximately 7 pieces. Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in in need to go in plastic recycling.|

Put the bacon in a non-stick frying pan in a single layer. Top with another heavy pan or frying pan that fits snugly into the pan on top of the bacon. If it’s not very heavy, top with another pan, or anything heatproof and weighty.
Fry on a medium-low heat for 10-15 mins until golden and super-crispy. Check the bacon halfway through cooking – increase the heat slightly if there’s lots of liquid in the pan, and flip the bacon over. Keep cooking until the bacon is uniformly golden and crisp.
Drain on kitchen paper before adding to sandwiches or crumbling over salads or soups.
