All our bacon and gammon is dry cured and English. Because they are prepared in this traditional way you do not have to boil off excess fluids before they start to cook properly. All bacon and gammon is packed on the morning of delivery so when we say it is fresh you can be sure it is.
In what quantities are the Bacon and Gammon available?
They are packed by the kilo. This means 30 to 36 rashers per pack for the bacon and between 5 and 9 steaks for the gammon. Bacon and Gammon can be stored successfully in the fridge for up to a week or both can be frozen for storage.
Will I get that white froth coming off my Bacon and Gammon when I cook it?
No you won’t. That particular phenomenon is a product of the mass production of Bacon where it is produced by curing in brine. This is a very rapid way of curing but the down side is that the brine is quite acid to taste so they have to add milk powder to it to neutralise the acidity and this what you see bubbling off when you first start to cook this inferior bacon. Of course the brine also soaks into the bacon making it more dense so when you buy it you are actually paying for a higher proportion of salty water. Our Bacon will cook properly with better flavour and without as much weight loss.
