Cured Bacon Slices 100g
Our free-range, Basque Country bacon comes from pigs that were raised humanely in the mountains and spent much of their lives outdoors on Basque pasture land.
Fed only on acorns, chestnuts and grass, the pigs are allowed to roam the Basque mountains to fatten up naturally. The meat is then cured using salt and Basque choricero pepper – a dried, smoky and slightly spicy pepper - and hung for several months. The result is a melt-in-your-mouth bacon that has a wonderful silky-smooth texture and a delicious nutty, smoky and slightly spicy taste.
- It can be enjoyed on its own with some fresh bread, on a charcuterie board or added to soups
- Warm salad of asparagus, bacon, eggs & walnuts
