Berkshire Bacon

The Edwards family of Surry County, Virginia, has produced award-winning cured pork products since 1926. A third-generation curer, the family does their smoking in an 80-year-old smokehouse. They produce this hand-cured bacon using heritage-breed Berkshire pigs--all their meat is traceable right to its origin. Made using top-quality pork from rare heritage-breed Berkshire pigs, pasture-raised under certified-humane conditions, including fresh air, sunshine and a nutritious diet free of antibiotics, animal by-products and hormones. Produced in partnership with Heritage Foods USA, which works to safeguard American food traditions by promoting small farms that preserve native breeds from extinction. The dry-cured meat is smoked over hickory logs for 18 hours and the result is meat that is darker in color, possessing a rich flavor not found in standard pork. Sliced medium-thick for authentic flavor and texture. 2 lb. (36-44 slices); Packaged in two 1 lb. packages.

Fatiest bacon ever
March 2, 2013
When I buy bacon at the grocery store, I choose a package with the least amount of fat (which still has a lot of fat) and the most meat. What I received from this company was two pounds of fat, almost pure white, no meat and not like the image. Disappointing.
Pros: Easy to Prepare
Cons: Disappointing, Ingredients

Holy Saltiness
November 29, 2012
Ok, I LOVE salty food. I do. This was WAY more than salty. I know that salt is used in bacon to cure and preserve the meat. It is likely the reason I love bacon. Frequently, I find that bacon does not have enough salt in it and is bland....this bacon is so salty that it is almost inedible. The only way we have been able to enjoy it is to cook with it (i.e. put it in other things to that the flavor is diluted). But, with it being $40, who wants to do that? Save your money.....
Cons: Ingredients, Disappointing, Flavor, too salty

Saltiest bacon I ever had
October 19, 2012
I was so looking forward to this bacon. Big mistake. SALTIEST bacon I have ever eaten. Maybe we got a bad batch but we ordered two and both were just as salty. Inedible. Cannot recommend.
Cons: Disappointing, salty
