Since 1926, three generations of the Edwards family of Surry County, Virginia have been producing award-winning cured meat products from best-quality pork. This special collection includes some of their best offerings, delivered in three monthly shipments. It includes: Month 1: Smoked Sausage Sampler (delivered December 10-20, 2013) This sampler includes three varieties of Edwards' famous links: Smoked Surry, juicy-crunchy Smoked Italian and Smoked Hot, with a pleasantly lingering heat on the finish. Air-dried and hickory smoked for 24 to 36 hours, all cook up plump and juicy in their natural pork casings. 12 links, 4 of each flavor (2 lb. 4 oz. total). Month 2: Bacon Steak (delivered between January 7-17, 2014) Cut into extra-thick 1/4" slabs, Edwards' bacon is hand-rubbed with a salt and sugar cure and smoked over hickory logs for 24-36 hours for a deep color and rich flavor not found in standard bacon. Two 1-lb. packages (9-11 slices per package). Month 3: Berkshire Heritage Pork Sausage (delivered between February 4-14, 2014) The perfect breakfast sausage: made from top-quality pork from rare heritage-breed Berkshire pigs, lightly seasoned with salt, coarse-ground pepper and sage, and ready to shape into patties or use in your favorite recipes. 2 lb. Collection includes 2 lb. 4 oz. Sausage Sampler, 2 lb. Bacon Steak and 2 lb. Berkshire Heritage Pork Sausage, delivered in separate monthly shipments. Sausage Sampler and Bacon Steak are shipped chilled; Berkshire Heritage Pork Sausage is shipped frozen. Made in USA.
