I know my eyebrows flew up the first time I heard THAT!!
I steer clear of MAMMAL MEAT because of my ALPHA-GAL allergy --check out ALPHA GAL tags in this blog and also click on this article for a good explanation TICKED OFF CARNIVORES
But my family still loves and thrives on mammalian meat (beef, pork, lamb, goat, deer, rabbit, etc) (PS If you don't know what a MAMMAL is...google it!!)
So, I decided to give this a try so bacon could be a staple in my food storage plan.
IT IS SOOOOO EASY.
Begin with parchment paper:
Add your fav bacon: line it up like like soldiers across the paper.
|I don't think the brand matters. I unrolled about 2 + feet.|
|I got about a pound and a third on one sheet as this is what fits into a quart jar.|
Fold the excess paper over the top and sides, then fold the bacon IN HALF.
|At this point ALL OF THE BACON will be covered.|
|Roll as tightly as you can, tucking in excess paper.|
Put the bacon roll into your WIDE MOUTH jar by gently rotating the roll "screwing" it into the jar.
Wala!!! Two "quarts" of bacon...each holding a pound +.
Now, process in a pressure canner... 90 minutes at 10 lbs pressure.
Now, wasn't that easy!! Upon opening, save those parchments papers for FIRE STARTERS!! :)
