days ago, on the recommendation of a woman at the grocery store. I needed to buy some and looked at the big bacon package and was afraid to buy it because it would be gross. I am glad I listened to that woman because I am very happy with this purchase.
When I opened it, I was a bit overwhelmed with that much raw bacon fat. I am glad I did this while everyone was asleep because it wasn't the most appetizing job. I divided it into three categories; fat, meat slabs and frying bacon. After frying up some bacon for breakfast, I was left with 9 oz fat, 8 oz meat slabs and 17 oz of frying bacon. The fat has some meat with it, the meat slabs are almost like ham pieces and will be great for seasoning soups and such. A 3 lb. package of bacon for $4.58, quite a bargain. I will definitely be buying end pieces from now on, especially from some of the butchers around here. I knew when that woman became animated telling me about how she makes green beans with it, that she knew what she was talking about. Green beans seasoned with some sort of pork fat is a big deal around this part of the country.
