The Black Farmer’s smoked back bacon is, in a word, princely. It won’t shrivel or crumble and it is thick enough so that you can cook the fat without drying the meat. This bacon is obviously perfect for a great British fry-up. It’s also delicious as a base to a massive range of dishes and is a great way to wrap stuffed meats.
Our free range pork comes from the best, local suppliers. We have always been very selective. We use highest-quality free range meat that comes from the south west of England. At every stage, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. Free range practices make for happier, healthier pigs and result in a far more delicious product. Add this unsmoked dry cured 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 unsmoked dry cured 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.|

To fry, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan until hot, add the bacon and cook streaky or back rashers for 1–2 minutes on each side and steaks for 3–4 minutes on each side. Dry frying is a healthier method of frying where only the melted fat from the meat is used.
