Bacon, or bacoun was a Middle English term that referred to all pork in general. According to food historians, the Romans ate a type of bacon variety made from the domesticated pig meat which was boiled with figs, then browned and seasoned with a pepper sauce recipe. Starting in the 1600s, bacon became a relatively easy recipe to produce. Bacon was a cheap meat source and it quickly became a staple for European peasants, though the first large-scale industrial bacon manufacturing didnít occur until the late 1700s. At this time, Yorkshire and Tamworth pigs were specifically bred for bacon. Now, bacon is a meat product that is prepared from a pig and is usually cured with large quantities of salt, called fresh bacon which may then be further dried, boiled or smoked. Bacon is prepared from several cuts of meat, though usually from the side and back cuts except in North America where it is commonly prepared from the pork belly. Side cuts of bacon have less fat than the belly, and North American bacon is referred to as streaky or fatty outside of the United States and Canada. Some interesting bacon facts you might like to know include that 70 percent of all bacon in the United States is eaten at breakfast time, and more than 2 billion pounds of bacon is produced each year in the U.S. alone.
