Local Find: Nueske's Smoked Bacon

Stephanie Webster

I recently came out of the closet regarding my bacon obsession. In fact, my passion for the smoked pork has kept me in constant pursuit of good bacon-y finds in our neck of the woods. 

This weekend, I spotted  a brand @ The Fresh Market in Westport that I have only previously found via mail order...Nueske's Smoked Bacon. Smoky with a mild sweetness, this bacon is smoked over apple wood embers for 24 hours (commercial bacon is smoked for about five hours).  It's lean and luscious, and since most of the fat is rendered in the smoking process, Nueske's bacon doesn't shrink like other brands when cooked.

If you haven't sampled Nueske's Smoked Bacon, hightail it over to The Fresh Market's meat department and shell out $5.80.  If you have found Nueske's Smoked Bacon anywhere else in Fairfield County, please share the coordinates below…
