Since we are touching on all the food related topics it brought to mind a post earlier this year that sited a report of an impending pork belly shortage. Bellies = Bacon and the article said we should expect to see a rise in bacon prices at the store.
Ma gave me orders to pick up some of Thielen's bacon since I'm working in Pierz and it jogged my memory of the article. The current bacon price seems to be on par in shops around central MN so I guess I owe a thank you to the pig farmers out there for averting this crisis.

Sorry, we switched to Turkey Bacon years ago. Wife just got some name brand "real" bacon, but was disappointed in it - said the turkey bacon had better flavor. However, we only like one brand - but the name escapes me at the moment. It used to be one brand but they were bought out by another company and re-labeled.

Ever go to Schrupp"s in Paynesville? Good bacon, thick slices, not the see-through kind like in grocery stores.

Been there a few times. Good product and good people. We just ordered some burgers for the upcoming EV event from Schrupp since our locals got ousted. French Lake, Plattenberg, Rieland, Knauss, Jerry's, Tesmer, even Lang's to our south. Gotta try a sampling. Where I grew up around Holdingford there are not many shops left.

On a different note, but tractor related. Are you going to Forest City's spring pull next weekend? I think we're gonna go there and open up the engine shed just to add something else. Maybe a couple memorial mixers.

We just get side pork from the butcher shop, no added crap! Just cook and sprinkle some salt and eat, bacon is out for us since we
quit with processed foods.

"We just get side pork from the butcher shop, no added crap! "

I got a couple of pounds of fresh side from the butcher a few weeks ago, the fella at the counter next to me asks, "Fresh side, what do you do with that?". "Cook it and eat it with my eggs", I said. Don't believe he knew what it was. I like it sprinkled with a little bit of Lawry's seasoned salt. That's how mom used to make it, growing up.

Around 30 years ago we rented a cabin on a lake by Hayward Wisconsin. When we got unloaded we went down to the closest gas station/bait shop/grocery store/liquor store to get some groceries. wife bought some real thick bacon, don't know what brand, think it might of been wrapped in white butcher paper. That was the best I ever had, can't remember any thing else lately but remember bacon from 30 years ago.

I'm starting to get a craving... Maybe some blood sausage and head cheese with that. The good part is I get that to myself when I bring it home.
