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.
The Black Farmer smoked streaky bacon will stay fresh for a good while. If you choose to freeze it, make sure you defrost it thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.
- STEP 1
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.
- STEP 2
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.
- STEP 3
Drain on kitchen paper before adding to sandwiches or crumbling over salads or soups.
