Strange and Effective Way to Store Bacon for 15+ Years

Canning bacon is an easy option for storing your bacon for up to a decade and beyond. I’m not talking about expensive canned bacon you can buy at the store. I’m talking about fresh bacon, without any added preservatives or unnecessary ingredients that quite honestly are better left undigested. Canning your own bacon is oh so right, on so many levels.

So, if you are in possession of a lot of bacon, there is no need to eat it all up in a rush before it goes bad, or let it go to waste. And, you don’t have to rely on a freezer, which can lose power on any given day, resulting in all product having to be thrown out.

Canning bacon is easy and doesn’t require too many items.

Supplies Needed for Canning Bacon

The majority of these items might already be in your home. If not, they are easy to purchase at the store. Here is what you will need:

Bacon Unbleached parchment paper or masking paper Pressure canner (traditional or electric) Sterilized canning jars (wide mouth is best)

If you don’t have a pressure canner, you can probably borrow one for this first batch. Test it out to
