Ah, Sunday Bacon. Clearly a theme in the Male Martha Household. We have been going through a variety of premium bacon every Sunday; premium being defined as:
- more money (natch)
- No added nitrates or nitrites
- No antibiotics
D'artagnan, for those of you who don't know, is a purveyor mostly of fine meat products, including an excellent foie and a variety of duck products. If its an animal, they sell fancy pieces of it to eat, and they do a great job of this.
And their bacon is good. But, in a 4 out of 4 consensus, not as good as the Applegate Farm bacon. It cooked a little less evenly, was a little bit chewier, and was more heavily smoked. It is not grossly oversmoked, so if you like a smoky flavor you might prefer this brand. The bacon was sliced nice and thick for commercial product however, which I liked as the cook.
So, our bacon quest continues. If anyone has any brands that they think we should try, let me know: with a post.
