if you’re vegetarian, you should probably skip this post, because it is all about the glory of eating other sentient animals. you have been warned.
even when i don’t, i still, secretly, deep down in my being, love the web, and this is one of the primary reasons why.
the other day i was idly surfing around and i came across a link for Proper British Bacon, and i thought to myself, “i know where that is!” so i took the short jaunt down the hill and visited.
i actually got there early: their hours are from 12:00 to 6:00 wednesday through friday (or saturday, i don’t remember), and i got there just before 12:00, so i waited until they opened the door, and went into about as british a butcher as i imagine exists on this side of the ocean. there was the requisite rack of “Spotted Dick” and other sweets, but i only had eyes for the pork. i didn’t even check to find out whether they carried mutton or not, i figured that could wait until my inevitable next visit. i was quickly on my way with my little package of joy.
|british bacon is made from pork shoulder, and is a lot more lean. american bacon is made from pork belly, and contains significantly more fat.|
|the cooked product is a lot of meat!|
|the american bacon actually took a few more minutes to cook all the way through|
|the american cooked product is definitely yummy, but it is a lot less meaty than the british bacon|
all in all, it was a very productive day, and you can be assured that i will be making visits to proper british bacon in the near future.
vegetarians, you can quit hiding your eyes now, it’s all over with.
One thought on “PORK!”
If you want mutton (or hoggett, or lamb) we can get that from my farmer friends, and then we know how it is grown! (and slaughtered.)
