Pure, unadulted, unsullied Bacon. No additives, no water.. where?
I dont beleive Butchers stock ‘pure’ Bacon. Well not the ones near me- one said his wasnt but I still got the water boiling out and another said he couldnt guarantee there wouldnt be some sort of preservatives (WTF).
Anywhere that sells (chain, anywhere) that sells unsullied Bacon????? I dont mind salt/cured but without Nitrate/natrates etc..Posted 9 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
Try your local Farmer’s Market. Google it, there is a website showing the venues and dates of them all in the country.
I can recommend the Duchy Originals bacon, you can get it in Sainsbury’s.
Just checked the freezer in CG Towers, shall have to have a word with the housekeeper, it’s almost empty otherwise I could have checked the ingredients.
I can recommend a pub and farm shop in Berkshire who have their own organic herds. Very good but you have to pay for it. Also do excellent ready meals.Posted 9 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
hora – check out the Northenden farmer’s market. There’s usually something half decent available there.
Details are somewhere on the Manchester City Council website. Think it’s on once a month, and I saw it when passing last Saturday….
Also, you tried Barbakan and Wild at Heart in Chorlton?Posted 9 years agoAmbroseMember
Hora- if you are really interested I could get you some ‘proper’ bacon. A friend rears a few pigs and when the time comes she slaughters them and then some joints go as pork, others as bacon. The boary stuff is REALLY strong- I generally soak it in water for a while to try to tone it down but even then I can’t eat a lot! Nobody else in the family will touch it! The sow bacon is milder but it is all relative- it is nothing like you will have bought in any shops I know of, and I used to be a butcher.
No mail order available, but seeing as she is only 40 mins from either Brechfa or Afan, as am I, next time you are headed this way give me enough warning and I’ll arrange some for you.Posted 9 years ago
Cheers guys. I love bacon TJ, its a treat so price isnt an issue. I had a bacon buttie from Nickys (scraggy) in Manchester on monday and my boss took the piss the next day likening me to a chipmonk.
Barbakan and Wild at Heart in Chorlton?
Will do ta OMUN. The veggie supermarket not the right place to shout in a Brian Blessed-voice…’ WHAAAT, YOU DONT SELL BACON? WHAT ARE YOU (self edit)*’

Hora, Where are you based? This guy does the most amazing dry cured smoked bacon. It comes with an inch rind of fat on that doesn’t look pretty to the point where i asked him to cut it off the first time i bought some, he nearly hit the roof claimimg it was like edible gold! (he’s very passionate about his bacon!).Posted 9 years ago
He got through to the last 6 on the UKTV Food Local Heroes programme with Gary Rhodes and some woman claiming it was the best bacon they’d ever tasted!! High enough praise for me to visit him on a weekly basis!
