Bacon is one of life's great pleasures. Crispy, salty, and hot, it complements eggs and hash browns, sandwiches and desserts. But anyone who's been served a lump of greasy, soggy bacon knows how important it is to cook it to perfection.
Niman Ranch is a brand that stands up to Kummer’s scrutiny not only because of its stellar flavor, but for the company’s committment to buy pork from small farmers who don’t use antibiotics, who limit the amount of pig waste they put out in the fields and adhere to humane treatment that includes pastures and straw-bedded pens. Fortunately, Niman Ranch pork is readily available at places like Whole Foods and Trader Joes.
