It is Saturday morning and it is time to pedal off some calories from last nights feast. I get on my bicycle with the destination of our local farmers market. The ultimate goal is to score more of the delicious Berkshire pork from Hanson farms. Today bacon is on our shopping list. This one pound package set us back 13 dollars. The curing and processing of this sliced rashers of joy were done by the Roundman' Smokehouse located in Ft. Bragg California. The smoke is slight, the sweetness is present and the salt rounds this out to make an all important balance of seasoning. The flavor of this pork is the knockout punch to make this bacon over the top special. It has an almost light beefy like flavor. It is not like any pork you probably have tried before. This is some special bacon.
