Remember that video that shows you how to make your own bacon? Did you watch that in despair, saying, “Dammit, DailyXY, I’d love to make my own bacon but don’t have all that crazy equipment!” That’s an odd thing to say, especially if no one else was present, but we get the sentiment.
Fear not; just buy The Original Baconkit, from 7th West Charcuterie. It comes with a curing bag, cure, maple sugar, a thermometer, and instructions. The only thing you’ll need to supply is a) and oven and b) a pork belly. According to our crack research team, most Canadian households have ovens, and most supermarkets or butchers can supply you with a pork belly if you ask nicely, even though pork belly is no longer traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which is a shame.
So, throw off the tyranny of pre-packaged bacon, or that crime against nature, pre-cooked bacon, and make your own bacon!
