A tender and juicy smoked meat product made from cured pork belly, scalded, and smoked. The bacon contains no ribs, cartilage, or skin. The distinctive, delicate flavour is enhanced by the natural aroma of bay leaves. It is suitable both as an addition to breakfast, adding character to egg dishes, and as an ingredient in spaghetti or potato casseroles. It is also often chosen by barbecue enthusiasts and by lovers of salads with the addition of roasted bacon crisps.
