Cure & Simple (love that name) offer bacon from pigs that lived their entire lives in the great outdoors in the Suffolk countryside. They have a natural balanced diet and the very highest welfare standards, giving you the peace of mind that when you choose Cure & Simple your bacon comes from happy, healthy, British pigs.
They wanted to make their bacon as easily accessible as possible, which is where the idea for bacon through the post came from. They use Royal Mail 1st Class to get your bacon to do the door, simply dropped through the letterbox in the perfectly sized packaging so you don't even have to be at home! You can choose to have your bacon weekly, fortnightly or monthly for £5.95 per delivery for approx. 10 rashers.
So much effort goes into rearing their pigs that I was glad to see that they put the same effort into choosing the best ingredients for flavourings. The herbs and spices used ideally complement their recipes and makes the bacon so very tasty.
The pack recommends to cook on a medium heat until crispy for best results. The smell was amazing and like no bacon I have smelt before. Usually bacon is either smoked or unsmoked, and that's it! This had a multitude of smells and flavours that I wasn't used to at all, but definitely enjoyed.
Nick said that he thought it tasted a lot like crispy duck, but personally I think he just isn't used to bacon having any flavour! It was refreshing to not just have an artificial smoke flavouring and also to have such a good quality meat. There was a sweetness which made for a great crispy edge. The herbs and spices used enhance the natural flavour of the bacon, and don't disguise or obscure the flavour.
I think I may sign up for a monthly delivery!
