then I tried the one serrated one pictured under the meat. It didn't do so well. I went back to the non-serrated knife. I had to stop and sharpen it a few times. I am so glad to have my grandma's sharpening stone in the picture. After slicing I layered the bacon on a cookie sheet inbetween layers of plastic wrap. After its frozen I will put it in gallon size freezer bags. This way I will be able to take out just what I want at any time. I freeze just about everything in layers on a cookie sheet like this.
I fried up a couple pieces. Tastes like the best smoked bacon or ham I ever had. Be sure to slice it thin, because it is a bit chewy. My cow was very young and grass feed, so he didn't have much fat at all. Oh so good though! I haven't had anything that even resembled bacon in a very long time! I ate a couple slices with 2 fresh eggs that had very yellow yokes! I have been letting my chickens out to roam lately, so they have been getting more greens, which make their yolks almost orange.
