You know, I like bacon, but … well, let’s just say I’m dubious.
Each can is 9 ounces of fully cooked and drained bacon. Between 2-3/4 and 3-1/4 pounds of raw bacon go into each can. Each can is the highest quality fresh #1 bacon slices. Cured to our specifications, cooked and then hand wrapped, rolled and packed in the U.S.
We cook this bacon down for you prior to canning, so you won’t pay for all of the natural shrinkage that occurs whenever you cook bacon. Then we carefully drain all of the fat and liquid off and can it fresh so it will taste as good out of the can as it would right out of the refrigerator.
A fine consolation, not paying for natural shrinkage. A case (12 cans) currently sells for $109.95, which works out to between $2.82 and $3.33 per uncooked pound. A good price compared to the stuff you get at the grocery store and take home to cook, but not a figure to inspire confidence in the quality.
