Our Tamworth Unsmoked Rind-On Back Bacon is beautifully cured giving a deliciously full flavour.
The Tamworth Pig is prized for producing the very best of bacon. We often refer to this one as the ‘ginger pig’. Considered as one of Britain’s oldest breeds, it has a lean look about it. Most noteworthy are its long snout and long legs which makes them excellent rotavators’.
The pigs are reared in a free-range environment. This allows them to eat the natural goodness that produces a marbling in the meat characteristic of these native breeds. Consequently this gives us that outstanding juiciness and taste to the bacon. The best way to cook our unsmoked back bacon is to leave the rind on and fry in a little oil until the rind is crispy. Best served immediately. Alternatively, you can fry or grill each rasher and leave to cool before chopping into bite-size pieces and adding to your favourite recipes.
The Tamworth is a hardy pig that lives outdoors all year round. They are so active and inquisitive. They also make great escape artists which keeps the farmers busy with the fencing!
Now considered as a vulnerable breed by the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
This is real Traditional Bacon, every pig is different, every rasher is different and they do have a good proportion of fat, sometimes as much as 50% but the favour is outstanding!
