Did you know?
A few things we learned about bacon:
- It’s one of the oldest meats in history; the Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500 B.C.
- While heavy on salt and kind of high in calories, bacon has no trans fat at all. Several slices of bacon are healthier in terms of calories, salt, fat and cholesterol than a hot dog, hamburger or glazed donut.
- The firmer the fat, the less sliced bacon will curl as it cooks
