Old Fashioned Smoked Collar Bacon – 500g

Dry cured and 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 finally smoking and air drying.

Original price was: £10.95.Current price is: £8.76.

Collar bacon, while less commonly found than other cuts of bacon like back or streaky, is delicious and versatile. It is made from the pork collar or ribeye, a cut from the shoulders of the pig, which is known for its marbling and rich flavour.

Characteristics:

  • Flavour and Texture: Collar bacon tends to be meatier and often more marbled than traditional back bacon. This marbling enriches the flavour and provides a tender texture when cooked.
  • Cooking: Due to its fat content, it cooks up quite juicy and can be a bit more forgiving than leaner cuts. It’s excellent for frying, grilling, or adding into dishes where its fat can render and impart flavour, such as stews and casseroles.

Uses:

  • Breakfast Dishes: Like other types of bacon, collar bacon is great when served in traditional breakfast dishes.
  • Sandwiches and Burgers: Its robust flavour makes it a hearty addition to sandwiches and burgers.
  • Incorporated into Recipes: Chopped collar bacon can be used in recipes like pasta sauces, pies, and soups where it adds depth and a savoury note.
