You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy the taste of bacon. This porcine delicacy has been an American staple for years. We here at SFG love anything bacon-related, but is there anything we don’t know about our beloved swine cuisine? For instance, how is bacon even made?
According to Wikipedia, “It is first cured using large quantities of salt, either in a brine or in a dry packing; the result is fresh bacon (also known as green bacon). Fresh bacon may then be further dried for weeks or months in cold air, or it may be boiled or smoked. Fresh and dried bacon is typically cooked before eating. Boiled bacon is ready to eat, as is some smoked bacon, but may be cooked further before eating.”
