Mmmmaple Bacon, From Canada

I picked up this very tasty bacon at COSTCO in January. Comes as as two pack. The first package baptized my new cast iron skillet and bacon press, filled my home with the delicious scent of maple syrup, and provided more than a week's worth of delicious pork produced protein.

The second package (pictured to the right) I cooked last week, and enjoyed it over the last 6 days. Yeah, the Maple Leaf brand does have some sugar in it, but my goodness, it is tasty! And it's so unhealthy, I am now below my 95Kg marriage weight - 16 Kgs lighter than I was eating carbs last summer, my blood work test results are better than they've been in decades, and I feel more energetic and youthful than anytime since my son finished junior high school. Organic apples, 75% cocoa dark chocolate, French & Italian wines (some of them organic, when I can find them), local mangoes, French & Italian & British cheeses, organic celery, carrots, romaine, spinach, hummus, soups... this is not as hard as I thought it was going to be!


  1. Have you tried Nueskes? Anne's dad swears by it.

  2. Not yet, but I will keep it in mind! Grazie!

  3. Is it too hot to cure your own bacon there?

  4. in the summer time, it is miserably hot - 115F sometimes, and 10% humidity. I am not sure how ultra low humidity would do on curing.... accelerating, or retarding it... hmmm.
