-----I have been reading about bacon ends and pieces (the end pieces after bacon is sliced). They are sold for less than regular bacon and often are nice things like applewood smoked bacon. I am waiting for an answer from a local store as to whether they sell these or can make them available when I come in. I can remember when bacon used to cost less than a dollar per package.
~ ~ ~ I am excited to find these as ends and pieces can make a reasonable substitute for pancetta. I have never been able to find pancetta in grocery stores.
~ ~ ~ At Trader Joe's last year, a pound of bacon ends and pieces was $2.99. I don't know what the current price is.

~ ~ ~ A thread about cooking bacon in the oven.
