Wow – Raw Bacon

Sunday, April 10, 2011 Review by judywrites

Yes, you did read that correctly.

La Quercia is offering a Tamworth bacon. It is salted, dried, and smoked and does NOT require any cooking.

 

The Tasting Table offered more information about this particular breed of pig. They have a higher meat to fat ratio than most bacon pigs. The fat is sweet and lighter on the mouth taste than on Berkshires. LaQuercia worked with Russ Kremer (the “pope of pork) for four years to develop the product.

Here is a link to the LaQuercia site for more information on their products and a link to order the Tamworth bacon. It is pricey, but I can only imagine the incredible eating experience it would be… no mayo on a sandwich with Tamworth bacon, probably not even tomato or lettuce.
