Omaha Bacon Club Member Page
Welcome to the Omaha Bacon Club.
Thank you for supporting a small local business and the local farmers we work with.
The club is pretty simple:
- The end of each month, come and pick-up your bacon at our retail shop in Ft. Calhoun, in Omaha at our house or the Gifford Park Farmer's Market, or in Lincoln.
- Check this page for exact dates and times and locations of pick-ups each month.
- Add-Ons are available, but the best and fullest selection is at the shop in Ft. Calhoun and at the Gifford Park Farmer's Market.
- If you can't make a month, just come by our retail shop or double up the next month. You won't ever miss out on the bacon you have paid for.
Chinese Sichuan Bacon
Last month's black forest bacon is one of the smokiest bacons we make. Not so with this month. Sichuan-style Chinese bacon is not smoked at all. Strips of pork belly are cured in a brine of soy sauce, wine, fish sauce, ginger, garlic, chilis, and Sichuan peppercorns (prickly ash). After curing, the strips hang and age for a week, but are never smoked. The bacon is sweet and tangy and distinct.
There are many, ways to use this style of bacon. This link from Serious Eats will give you some good ideas and recipes: http://www.seriouseats.com/2011/04/how-to-use-chinese-bacon.html
