48 Hour Bacon Sous Vide

This technique is a wonderful way to get the “pork belly” texture that has been all the rage lately but with the classic bacon flavor. 12-hour bacon is good but let’s be real, 48-hour is spectacular! I like purchasing and cooking up my bacon in large slabs and after cooking I can portion into more manageable sizes or cube for use in salads, stews, hashes etc. or even slice into rashers for classic bacon - only better!

Another great product from our friends at Heritage Cheshire
