Peameal Bacon

Forget about anything you’ve seen or heard about Canadian bacon. What you see in your grocery store cooler next to the Oscar Myer hot-dogs, labeled as Canadian “Back Bacon” is rarely used in Canada.

Poutine

Poutine is a delectable (fattening) dish consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown gravy or sauce and sometimes additional ingredients. It originated in Quebec and this one is just the basic comfort version!

Lee Anne...that is one thing I really miss!

I remember those beautiful tied up cured hams that you boiled for a couple of hours, added potatoes, carrots, etc...and it was the most delectable dinner. I do it with a corned beef but it's still not the same! Thanks for the memory!

And how about "Cheese Curds?"

I was shocked when I found them in the local veggie market a couple of months ago...YAY!

yum!! were they kept at room temperature to preserve their "squeakiness"?

I remember a while back, some food inspection agency tried to force Canada to refrigerate their cheese curds. There was such an uproar that they finally gave up and said that curds could be kept at room temp. for a set amount of time.


How 'bout Pork Tourtiere? That has to be a French Canadian classic as well. The lady at the bakery up the road makes me the best tourtiere I've ever eaten.
