This is not the same as the unsmoked or smoked British bacon. It cooks up differently from the traditionally cured bacons but does have a wonderful flavor and texture all its own. It does not cook up with the same bright pink color of traditional cooked bacon. If you are trying to get nitrites out of your diet this is a a great way to go. This is a one pound package. Cuts may vary some cuts will be streakier and have more tail....some will be leaner with less tail, Please specify what your preference is when ordering.
