Bacon is an ingredient that pops up in a variety of food ideas and recipes, from casserole recipes to dessert recipes, it really is an ingredient that is more popular than ever. Bacon is a staple in many kitchens, and it's no wonder especially when it's cooked to crispy, salty, fatty, and meaty perfection.
When it comes to purchasing bacon, you will be faced with more than one choice. Some of the most common forms of bacon include American bacon, slab bacon, pancetta bacon, Canadian bacon and Irish or English bacon. American bacon is cured and cold-smoked pork belly that is meat that is trimmed of its rind. American bacon is usually sold in long thin or thick slices that must be first cooked. Slab bacon is a large slab of American bacon that still has the rind attached and is uncut so that you can choose just how you want to cut it up. Pancetta bacon is Italian cured bacon and sometimes spiced pork belly that is unsmoked. Pancetta bacon is sold in chunks or thinly sliced rounds that must be first cooked. Canadian bacon is similar to ham. Canadian bacon is also known as peameal bacon, and is made from pork loin that is trimmed of fat and cured and often smoked. Canadian bacon is much leaner than the American variety of bacon, and has a tender texture, that is a bit sweet. Canadian bacon is generally sold precooked. Irish or English bacon is a bit of a hybrid of both American and Canadian bacon. Irish or Englis bacon is made from curing and usually smoking the pork loin leaving the fat on and the pork belly attached. The loin portion of this bacon is known as rashers, the belly part is streaky, and both need to be cooked first.
As for cooking bacon, there is no smell that compares. When cooking American bacon, you'll have to be careful, as it is not difficult, but can involve some dangerous bacon grease splattering about if not done properly. Luckily American bacon has some versatility going for it, and it can be cooked on the stovetop, in big batches in the oven, or in the microwave. When cooking American bacon you want to practice low, even heat which will render out the fat slowly and help to minimize any splattering, be sure to crisp it up before it burns, and keep the bacon from curling up.
