City Meat Market | Salted Pork

  • Salt pork is used with or without the rind in traditional recipes such as baked beans and Valleyfield-style bacon sandwiches.

  • To reduce the salt content, let salt pork soak for a few hours in cold water, or blanch it for 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Salted pork fat enhances the taste of some traditional slow-cooked and braised dishes, like split pea soup.
