Got your Bacon : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I like bacon with my oatmeal and toast.As a child I remember my Mother cutting bacon that came in slabs.As I recall it needed no refrigeration.It would be nice to have on hand if the y2k is a Fender Bender. I found a site that has these and other products.I live on the west coast,so delivery might be "IffY' for me,but if you live in the area,check it out.

Sounds very good. Have you thought of pepperoni? I laid in a supply of this. It lasts well if you have even root cellar cooling. My supply may only last 6 weeks but we'll enjoy those pizzas beg\fore the rice and beans! Pam

Sam's carries large cans of Tone's real bacon bits that are very good.

At Walmart recently I found packets of a Hormel pre-cooked bacon that only needs to be refrigerated after being opened. Wasn't too bad.

Country ham! It will last until Christmas 2000 and beyond and tastes soooo good with milk & cookies! grits, too....

ho, ho, ho, I'm watching you....

Speaking of country ham, I bought two hams at the local Wal-mart yesterday at 1.68/lb. I had bought one previously to "taste test" it, and it was really good, just like I remembered my grandpa's home cured country hams tasting. You can't beat the scraps for seasoning those beans you put away. I don't know what the "shelf life" is, but grandpa's would last over a year. He would always have at least 2 or 3 left from the previous 'butchering' which he did once a year, in the fall if I remember right.

GERALD-- Can you just come some off the ham and then repackage it or do you have to prepare and refrigerate the rest? That's an incredible price you got

All our bacon is currently roaming around the hills here "on the hoof" so to speak....during the winter months they seem to like to hang out closer to the house. Perfect for us. While a 7.62X39 isn't generally considered a good hunting round it does great for the piggies and doesn't mess up the meat to much.
