Not sure what to get that special someone for their Birthday this year? Can’t find the perfect Christmas present? Struggling to get your Dad a fantastic gift for Father’s Day? Our Homemade Curing Kit…Bacon is the perfect gift for any occasion.
Do you know a proper Foodie who loves venturing into new food trends, or someone that is a beginner and wants to try out a new culinary experience? Our Curing Kit isn’t just a great looking gift, but it also offers a unique hands-on experience for them to remember, and impress their friends and family with their newly found culinary skills.
Did you know, shop bought Bacon has a high content of brine, which is essentially salted water that is pumped into meat, and that’s why you get all the white water in the pan or grill when cooked. The brine increases the weight of the bacon, so what you’re really paying for is mostly water, not meat. Our kit uses a dry cure which means the water naturally occurs in the meat and leaves you with the traditional, delicious Bacon flavours.
