Call this bacon?

OK, so the taste isn't bad, but it is so watery that it goes off really quickly and is difficult to crisp in a pan. Surely the whole point of smoking bacon is to make it keep? I have switched to Ocado's dry smoke, which is better value.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Great Value, crisps up nicely!

Don't understand the very few negative reviews here. I have swapped to this from previously ordering a more expensive streaky bacon. I wouldn't buy if it oozed water in the pan! I'm very fussy - if it doesn't crisps I won't buy!!! It's now a repeat purchase and I would definitely recommend!

We got this as a substitute for the bacon we usually get. Never again. The bacon was pumped full of water - presumably to bulk out the weight - which oozed into the pan when I fried it. The bacon itself had a nasty artificial taste. The package claims it's produced by farmers 'who share our values'. Presumably these values include overcharging you for inferior bacon by getting you to pay for the added water.

Best way to cook it: Place some baking parchment on a baking tray and lay the bacon on it. Place more backing parchment on top of the bacon and weigh the bacon down with a dish of some sort. Oven bake for 20-25 mins at 220 for perfect thin crispy bacon.
