Cooking Salt Pork

Category Meat
Salt pork looks a lot like a thick slice of uncooked bacon. It is not as commonly used as it has been in the past. This is a page about cooking salt pork.

To fry salt pork bacon, first cut off all the rind as this causes grease to pop really bad. Place slices in pan of water and add 1 or 2 Tbsp. syrup or honey. The syrup helps the meat to brown. Bring water to a boil, remove from heat after a very short boil. The length of time to boil depends on how salty the meat is.

Remove from water and drain on paper towels. Fry in pan, preferably iron skillet, with very small amount of oil. Have a lid handy in case the grease pops. Also can be cooked in the oven, 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes. This is great with biscuits and has no more fat than regular bacon.
