Leslie and June Scott make some great bacon. This is serious country bacon; cured and smoked so that you can actually smell it through the plastic wrapping.
This bacon is actually all shelf-safe. It's smoked and cured like they did back in the day during times where people didn't have refrigeration.
It should also be noted that since this is a dry-cured bacon, which means that most, if not all, of the water has been removed. So when you cook it up there is almost no shrinkage at all. Therefore, for those that like really salty foods will love this bacon. If you're the type of person that adds a load of salt to all your meals, this bacon is for you.
For those who are salt sensitive should note that this bacon is great for cooking, adding to soups, stews, or other recipes. The saltiness of this bacon makes it so that you don't need to add any additional salt. However, it is not recommended to eat this bacon by itself. Dry-cured= salt-cured.
