Curing pork belly, future bacon!
We got a HUGE pork belly delivered yesterday. Heritage Farms Cheshire Pork in eastern North Carolina is where we get the belly for our bacon. They are known for the quality of their pork all over the world. Japan especially! They have never failed us.
As I said they NEVER fail us! I use their online store to order.
Our favorite cure is brown sugar and black pepper. One part brown sugar, one part kosher salt and half a part cracked black pepper.
Packed in this cure the pices go on an air tight container. Now it goes down in the fridge for at least 2 weeks Then the smokee begins! Check back then for more pork postig.
