For the record, as much as I will defend bacon, I do not condone the cruel and abusive methods of the industrialized, commodified, commercialized 'farming' system that produces the majority of meat for sale in this country.

Factory farming is environmentally destructive. It is a horror which has given pork enthusiasts such as myself a very bad name. The hog itself, degraded, bred for quick growth and lean carcasses. Fed a diet of chicken shit, GMO soy and glyphosate doused wheat has become one of the unhealthiest meats you could eat. No wonder bacon has such a bad rep...



I've got work to do...

I worked in the Distribution Center..where boxed cuts went into the freezer or deep freeze (depending on the cut). Our hogs were gassed..which set my mind at ease..but was constantly dodging frozen pigs feet, that fell from the conveyor...and was nearly killed by an 80 lb box of frozen Pork belly..I still love Bacon!

I have no problems with what you do, and respect the fuck out of someone who makes their own charcuterie - I am not a "you must all be like me" vegetarian, and one of my best friends makes it as well. You know where your meat comes from, you process it, you respect it. You're closer to that than I am to my vegetables (even buying from the farmers market & having farmers in the family), and one of my biggest issues is our awareness of where your food comes from. The problem is that every "defense" of bacon comes off as another meme - it needs as much defense as straight marriage or Christianity in America does. It''s already at the top of the heap, let the meme's die already. Charcuterie, at least around SF, gets tons of respect, and if you had said that it was a pinnacle of culinary artistry I wouldn't have disagreed, as shocking as people might find that from a vegetarian. Separating bacon from the rest of it... not so much.

As for the books, Salt and Cod have been on my shelves forever (I also suggest reading The Big Oyster by Kurlansky), and I've read Salt at least a half-dozen times (I didn't like Cod as much). I'm fascinated by the history of things we don't think about.

i worked in a butcher shop when i was 16.

every friday we made home-made sausages.

yeah, it was glorious, indie folk song worthy work, as we stuffed cut pieces of flesh into a grinder and then fed them into intestines soaked in brine.

we would twirl our moustaches with lard, not knowing that 35 years later, hipsters from montreal to seattle would be doing the same, and somehow glorifying it like they discovered the new world.

yeah.

anyone want to buy my artisan pickles? They're Old tymee flavoured...

Of course bacon has been dead for some time. That's what bacon is supposed to be--meat that's prepared in a manner that you can eat it a few months later.

Pretty miraculous though that bacon is dead and then cured.

Bacon had better be dead. Because I am cooking and eating it.

If you are concerned with how long it has been dead, then check the expiration date. Ta-da!
