Scratch made Bacon has been the topic of many reviews on Tripadvisor and Face Book. Afterall, we are a Bed and Breakfast and you better have a comfy bed and awesome mouth watering delicious breakfast when those words are in the businesses name. You wouldn’t go to a burger joint and expect to order prime rib steak. In the two years that we have owned Fox Hill B&B, we have developed quite a reputation with our breakfasts. We cure our own bacon at Fox Hill! Staying more than one night guarantees that you will get BACON in one of your breakfasts. At Fox Hill, we make our breakfasts from scratch, whether its blueberry pancakes or butterscotch muffins, we get up early and start the fixin’ the treats to start your special.
Decadent Candy for Breakfast?
It’s like eating candy for breakfast. The little kid in all of us wants to break the rules when on holiday. So, we usually add a serving of fresh fruit with the candy. Back to the subject of Fox Hill’s homemade bacon. Unlike store bought bacon, we start with a locally sourced pork belly. Then we cure the bacon using a combination of brown sugar, pure maple syrup, salt, cracked pepper, coarse pepper, Jim Beam bourbon and time. Time is the key. Rushing the curing or the smoking process will not produce the required and repeatable results. About two weeks in a curing bag it’s ready to smoke. We fire up the smoker and shoot for the optimal temperature we like. We smoke the bacon for 5-6 hours with an Applewood, lump charcoal and constant, consistent temperature. Then it’s back in the chill box for another week. We slice it on a commercial slicer and freeze it for our guests to enjoy.
