Cold Smoked Collar Bacon – 227g (8oz)
Dry cured and cold smoked shoulder bacon.
Collar bacon is from the central muscle of the shoulder and is the same cut as a pork ribeye steak. There is a natural seem of fat running through the bacon that adds flavour and moisture during cooking.
We dry cure our collar bacon then wash it under ice cold water before cold smoking at The Holy Smokery and finally air drying.
Our butchers tips
Our cold smoked collar bacon is from the shoulder of North Yorkshire farmed, rare breed pork. We select the pork for its higher fat content, as we believe that this leads to a much tastier product.The slow growing breeds that we use for our bacon put on weight and add flavour slowly in a natural way.
We take the central muscle from the pork shoulder. The same muscle that butchers use for pork ribeye steaks. This is then dry cured slowly before being rinsed in iced water, cold smoked over applewood and hung to air dry to develop a fantastic texture and concentrate the flavour. Our bacon is smoked for us by Jake Buchan at the Holy Smokery, just up the road on the Kilnsey Estate in the Yorkshire Dales.
If you prefer you can order unsmoked collar bacon too.
Collar bacon is just right for making a bacon sandwich with a perfect balance of tender meat and melting fat for extra flavour.
If you want to make your own collar bacon at home, you can buy a whole pork collar and cure it yourself. Let us know if you need some help or a sachet of cure mix.
