You're not alone if you've ever pondered what sorcery turns a grunting little pink pig into mouthwatering slices of crispy bacon. The Original Bacon Kit pulls back the curtain on this mystery and provides you with the golden opportunity to make this stuff yourself.

Everything tastes better when it's made from scratch; it's to do with the effort, the attention to detail, the pure love that goes into it, and this is certainly no exception. All you have to do is find yourself a nice juicy pork belly (available in most butchers/supermarkets) and the kit gives you everything else you need to transform it into your favourite breakfast staple/pancake topping/the best part of a BLT sandwich.

Once you've cured the belly in the curing bag provided, you'll have to pop it in the fridge and leave it for 7 days (arguably the slowest and most agonising 168 hours of your life). It's then into the oven for a couple of hours (nearly there) and after it's cooked and cooled you can slice it – as thick or as thin as your heart desires. What's more, this bacon won’t shrink or release a heartbreaking pan full of water so you’ll wonder why you ever purchased that inferior pre-packaged hogwash from the supermarket in the first place.

Until you’ve tried this kit you have never tasted bacon as nature intended it.
