Most of your friends will be grateful if you make them a bacon sandwich. But what if after a few delicious bites, you informed them that you’d actually made the bacon yourself as well?

We’ve done all the hard work for you, researching our tried and tested curing recipes and sourcing the best equipment to allow you to create deliciously cured meats at home.
In the age of celebrity chefs and gourmet goodies at your corner shop, we’re all on a quest to create amazing meals for our friends and family. Food making kits take this to the next level, allowing you to create your own artisan ingredients. They take the hassle out of sourcing equipment by providing it all within a kit and include detailed instructions that even the most novice chef can get along with. The result is allowing home cooks to tackle new culinary challenges in their own home, with some very delicious results! It’s never been easier to cure your own meats at home.
What do you think of supermarket bacon? It’s better than no bacon at all, but the fact that it is pumped full of brine (essentially salt water) means that it produces an icky white foam when you cook it, and much of what you are paying for is water! We think that we can do better, and so can you. Launched in late 2014, the Homemade Bacon Curing Kit contains everything you need to cure your own Original, Sweet and Smoky Bacon at home. You just need to do is add a nice piece of pork belly and clear a space in your fridge. It has already gone down an absolute storm with bacon lovers around the country, with both the Independent and Stylist choosing it as one of their favourite gifts.
