Today on stage we have a unique act. This show will be sweet. The Revue will feature Maple Sugar Cured bacon from the Freedom Meat Lockers.

Ms. Goofy and I recently had a Meat Adventure to Freedom California. The Freedom Meat Lockers is a huge Meat Palace. We were tempted by this cure of bacon. When you first open this packet of Maple Love, the sweet smell of Smoke and Maple will envelop you. Once the heat starts to render the
fat, the whole house will smell of Maple Syrup. We have never, ever had a bacon that was so odoriferous. It can drive one to making pancakes.
How did it taste? Like its smell, it was maple sweet. The smoke was present, but not overpowering. The texture was crisp with a little chew. The bacon did not taste salty. In fact this was a Maple Bomb. It was a little to sweet for my palate. We will award this bacon 3.5 stars out of 5.
Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
Cost: 5.98/pound
Where: Freedom Meat Lockers
160 Hi Grade Ln
Freedom, Ca. 95019

Whenever I have pancakes, waffles or French toast, I like to drip a little maple syrup over my bacon, too - sounds like Freedom did it for you this time.

Maple bacon... yeahhhh.
Oughta be one of the cornerstones of the food pyramid. Last batch I made was good, but the maple wasn't quite as prominent as I woulda liked. Gonna cure a little longer next time, and smoke w maple wood. See if that turns the trick.
