You've seen Canadian bacon sold in the grocery store...well this is definately not that! In fact, I don't know what that is!
Peameal bacon is really unusual and I guess back in the old days they used to coat it with Pea Meal to preserve it. These days they roll it in Cornmeal. It's the loin and is exceptionally lean except for a thin little layer of fat around the outside. It's cured, but when you buy it you have to cook it. It's salty like Smithfield, but very tender.
I order it a couple times a year and if you sign up on this site they sometimes have discounts. I keep it in my freezer and it takes no time to defrost a package.
It comes packed like this and it's really good!
