is it possible to cure already sliced pork belly?
we get a whole hog every year, and my husband defrosted the pork belly to have for dinner tonight... and upon opening the packages, it's already sliced. uncured. needless to say, he's pretty pissed and has already called the butcher to let them know... but can we do anything fun with this? they sliced ALL of the side pork, so we don't have any real belly to work with, just sliced and uncured belly.
is there any hope for curing this into homemade bacon?
any other ideas?
