The Ultimate Guide to Bacon



Mouth-watering and crispy, bacon is a popular type of cured pork.

Different countries use different cuts of the pig for bacon. For instance, the United States tends to use bacon from pork belly, while other parts of the world including Canada & Great Britain consume loin (or back) bacon. Bacon is always sold cured and normally smoked, but can be raw or cooked. It's no secret that we all love eating bacon. Maybe, because it is practical and goes with everything. You can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just to snack on.
