So, I can no longer buy my from my favorite bacon vendor. I am so sad.
I use to buy bacon from Wallace once a month as that was how often he came into the city. So, last go I bought a lot of bacon not knowing that he had changed his recipe for curing bacon. Apparently, it was a choice between nitrates and/or sugar. I do not know why that is the choice.
But, cane sugar doesn't agree with me. And, really, I don't want sugar in my diet from sources that do not need sugar. I just don't get why we have to put sugar in everything! no wonder we all get fat.
Anyway, I'm now on a quest for a new bacon provider. Sigh... more work.
I'm actually asked the BF what he thought about possibly making my own bacon. but that would definitely be more work. *grin*
