    So, lamb bacon... not really worth getting excited about, more just like lamb than bacon.

    Anyways, maybe i'll try beef bacon sometime, but right now in my fridge i have traditional 'black' bacon curing and the look is good!

    Soft, subtle, and only slightly sweet - the sugar in the treacle really does tenderise the meat, countering the salt in feel as well as flavour.

    Anyone, please, have any idea why a pork belly cured in a mixture of Kentucky bourbon, treacle, brown sugar, honey, and maple syrup, would come out tasting of pineapple?!!!

    That would actually be quite logical, but no it was British pork...

    Weirdly, the fat does have the texture of pineapple, but as far as i know, no actual pineapple made it into the marinade.

    ... I have used all the ingredients individually on previous occasions to cure bacon without a resultant pineapple flavour being evident, so I'm thinking the reason probably lies in the combination of sugars, and a possible chemical reaction somewhere.
