Our Kit includes everything you need to cure your own bacon at home. Home-curing has been a popular trend over the last year or so, giving you the ability to make proper dry-cured bacon in the comfort of your own home. Curing is any of various food preservation and flavouring processes such as meats and fish, by the addition of combinations of, salts, nitrates, nitrites or sugar. The aim is to draw the moisture out of the meat by the process of osmosis.

Although it sounds complicated, it really isn’t! The process is so simple, and only takes 7 steps. The whole process takes 7 days and your Kit comes with an easy to read instructions booklet for you to follow.

Here are some frequently asked questions about our bacon home made curing kit:

Q. What cut and how much pork do I need?
A. We recommend using pork belly from your local butchers, but you can also get from your supermarket. You will need 500g per 30g curing mix, so 1.5kg of bacon if you want to cure all three in one go. You can also use back bacon if you would prefer. We recommend curing for an extra day to ensure the flavour penetrates the meat properly.

Q. How long does it take to cure?
A. The whole Bacon Curing process takes 7 days, but only takes 30 minutes preparation time.

Q. Can I reuse the kit?
A. You can reuse all the contents of the kit, apart from the cures. However we do sell refill packs in our online shop. Click here to take a look.

We use only the best quality ingredients in both our Gift and Catering sides of the business, so we feel it’s only fair to share our recommended Butchers for you to purchase your Bacon from:
