Please note that this product will now be from pigs raised in either Canada or Austria. Both farms are all-year free-range pigs raised without the use of growth hormones, preventative antibiotics, or other nasties. There is no difference in quality or package size.
Horizon Farms proudly presents probably Japan's first all-natural, sugar-free, free-range pork bacon. This took us a year of experimenting and many costly batches. Here we are:
This bacon is cured in an all-natural curing process using only natural spices. Absolutely no nitrates added, no curing salts, no celery, no sugars, no artificial ingredients, no nasties. Then smoked for a duration of 2 hours using natural hickory smoke. The result is amazingly good bacon that you can enjoy with your whole family. This tends to be more the American style bacon that crisps up and shrinks rather than the lean British or Canadian bacon which is usually made from the pork loin.
We use the pork belly which has a relatively high-fat content - the juices are what make our bacon so succulent. The pork comes from pastures of Austria or Canada of which are both are free-range and completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Family-farm produced, ethically raised high-quality pork and top-quality natural spices. Cured for 2 weeks, smoked, sliced and blast frozen. Hands down, this might be the cleanest bacon available. A difference in quality you can taste.
Each pack contains 300g worth of thick pre-sliced bacon. The thickness is 6mm which probably too thick to use as a burger topping or to wrap around vegetables. The best-recommended use is bacon bits for salad topping or to mix with scrambled eggs. Cook on high heat without adding any oil in the frypan. Due to the high-fat content of the pork belly, the slices will shrink in size and crisp up. Oh, you will love this bacon. Addiction guaranteed! See the cooking instructions below.

Defrost the pack of bacon in a bowl of water (less than 1 hour) or in the fridge overnight.
One pack is enough for 3-4 persons depending on the recipe. Once opened you can leave the pack in the fridge for up to 2 more days. Please do not refreeze again for quality reasons.
Prepare a frying-pan to high heat and place the bacon slices without additional oil or butter into the frying pan. If you have a splatter screen at hand, use it.
The pork belly that we use for the bacon is relatively high in fat and it will show during cooking. The bacon will also shrink in size and become crispy - the very characteristics of American style bacon. Turn them once to have a crispy surface on both sides.
Take off the bacon from the heat once crispy brown. Place on a kitchen paper towel for a while to "drain the bacon from the grease".
Thick bacon slices are very versatile, you can cut them into small pieces prior to cooking and cook them together with scrambled eggs or use as pizza or salad topping.
Bacon bits and scrambled eggs go well together and are a wholesome breakfast. All free of nasties. We also offer farm-fresh free-range eggs.
Enjoy crispy bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and free-range pork.
Translated from Japanese: The taste is not strong, so it’s easy to use and delicious. There’s a lot of fat, but when you put it in pasta, you can cook it with only bacon fat without using extra oil.
Translated from Japanese: Juicy, additive-free bacon! I'm waiting for it to be back in stock!
Translated from Japanese: I often buy additive-free bacon in chunks, but this time I tried this thick-sliced bacon.
I made bacon with eggs. As soon as I took a bite, I said "Oh, it's delicious!" It has a solid meat taste. Next time, I will buy it the bacon chunk again!
Translated from Japanese: When I was looking for additive-free bacon, I’m happy I found bacon that is reasonably priced. It was delicious. Thank you.
Translated from Japanese: More than three-quarters were fat and only a little part was reddish meat.
There are individual differences in bacon, so it can't be helped, but even though it's additive-free, it's not good to eat too much fat, so I cut off half of the fat and re-froze it.
I'm going to use it as sautéed oil for making piccata with pork spatula.
