NAMP 409 Fresh bacon   

By Bob Oros

Fresh bacon is simply an uncured piece of pork belly.  It can be purchased sliced or unsliced and has many foodservice applications.  For example it can be wrapped around a beef tenderloin steak to add flavor, it can be cooked and added to a salad for extra taste, or it can be made into an entree as shown here.
