A recipe to warm your winter blues! The following recipe will give you the confidence to make Bacon in the comfort of your home.
All the senses get involved in the weeklong process of curing a gorgeous slab of pork belly and finishing up by smoking or roasting it to piggy perfection.
Smell the yeasty beer as you stir it into crushed juniper berries and cracked black peppercorns, see the transformation of the belly as it takes on Bacon’s characteristic reddish hue as days pass, and feel the slick cure as you flip the pork daily and poke it to check firmness.
Hear the sizzle of a thick slice hitting a hot skillet when it’s finished, and, finally, taste the texture of chewy-meets-melty as you take the first bite of the sweet-savory Bacon over which you have labored.
It’s an empowering experience.
