I finally got to get some Spence Butchery bacon
A month or so ago I blogged about some bacon from Pialligo Estate. Soon after a friend on Twitter, viz., @JohnMalnar suggested I try the Spence Butchery bacon. He reckons it’s the best. I said I would try it and yesterday I managed to get to Spence after my grocery shopping at Westfield Belconnen. Rather than eating some straight away I went and shot some pelicans around Lake Ginninderra 🙂
The bacon looks and feels very good. The cut is substantial and the butcher is happy to cut it in a variety of thicknesses. I got what I thought was a relatively thin cut but even so the bacon is very weighty and dense. It smells really good raw. I asked for 200 g which worked out to two large rashers and cost me just under $5.
This morning I did a very basic bacon and eggs. rather than fry the bacon though I cooked it in my bench top oven.
The bacon was very nice. Certainly on a par with that of the Pialligo Estate bacon. I may well return to get more Spence Butchery bacon from time to time. I can also get Pialligo Estate bacon now from Westfield Belconnen.
After that breakfast I needed to go on a decent walk so I walked around Lake Ginninderra and shot some photographs.
