Omaha Bacon Club Member Page
Jan. - June 2019
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:
About once a month, we make a specialty bacon for the club members.
Over the course of your 6-month membership, you will get 6 lbs. of specialty bacons and 6 lbs. of our regular dry-cured country or traditional bacon.
You will get an email before each pick-up directing you to this page, where you can find the details of dates/times etc.
If you can't make a pick-up, 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. If extra bacon is not available, you can have $8 in credit per lb. of bacon to spend on anything at the shop.
If you have any questions, please TEXT Chad (instead of emailing or calling) @ 402-999-1075.
French Ventreche Bacon
Ventreche (ven-tresh) is a traditional bacon from the Gascony region of Southwest France. We made the smoked version, so it is actually ventrèche fumée. It is basically a younger, lightly smoked version of Italian pancetta.
All-natural Duroc pork belly is seasoned with a little garlic and black pepper and dry-cured for 2 weeks. After curing, it is coated with black pepper and hung and dried for a week, before smoking over oak and birch.
There are dozens of ways to use the bacon (click for list of ideas). You will be getting a chunk of bacon that can be sliced if you like, but it is most often cut into small cubes, lardons, for cooking.
I would highly recommend making either classic French Cassoulet (recipe here) or a personal favorite, Tarte Flambée, aka Alsatian pizza (recipe here).
