Coming in late June: HogTree Cedar-Apple Bacon!
This bacon is a peace offering to the Southern orchardist's scourge: Cedar-Apple Rust, a symbiotic fungal tryst between Apple trees and Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperous virginiana).
Cured for a week and a half with Eastern Red Cedar berries (more mild than juniper berries with a subtle piney sweetness), thyme, brown sugar, and cracked black pepper. Then it's smoked over apple wood, giving a subtle sweetness to the smoky bass notes.
This bacon comes in 12oz packages and is medium sliced.
