Black Forest Bacon Recipe

morphone | Oct 15, 2010 01:09 PM

I've search all over the freaking internet and I can't find a recipe for curing my own black forest bacon. I buy this stuff at Whole Foods all the time, but I'd rather make it myself. The ingredients listed on the WF version is as follows:

Pork, seal salt, raw sugar and "spices"

So, what makes it black forest bacon? Is it a similar recipe to black forest ham? This stuff is not as pink as regular cured bacon. It's browner and sweeter.

Anyone got a tip or recipe?
