Home-Made Bacon continued....
Today after class, I decided to start my home-made bacon. 5 lbs of pork belly from work.
Here is the Pork Belly. 5 lbs. only cost a little over $16.
This is after the cure was "rubbed" all over the Pork.
Close-up shot of the cure.
Close-up of the end. Looks almost like bacon already!
So far, it's been SUPER easy to make. It has to set for 7 days. So we will not know the final results until next Tuesday. Halfway through the week, I will "rub" the pork again to redistribute the cure. And when it's done, I will put more pictures up and let you know how it turned out.
