How could bacon possibly be improved upon? How about starting with free-range, acorn-fed pork belly! These strips of decadent deliciousness have been slow smoked with hickory wood to create some of the finest bacon in the world. They add melt-in-your-mouth flavor to your favorite recipes and are excellent sprinkled on salads and baked potatoes. We love simply crunching away at crispy strips of this heavenly bacon!
Unlike your grocery store bacon, this Ibérico de Bellota panceta has less lean and more fat - but that is a good thing, because the fat contains all the flavor. The lean adds a crunchy accent to the fat, which tends to cook up quite crispy as well. This smoky bacon is so rich and delicious, you will find yourself savoring every nibble.
