Convenient, delicious, and long shelf life
on June 7, 2012
We've used Yoder's canned bacon for several years - mainly for the times when company comes and I don't have fresh bacon handy. We keep a case of it for emergencies too. There's no reason to do without favorites like bacon just because the power is out. They're great to toss in a backpack for camping, and people are often amazed to see that bacon comes in cans.
There are about 50 slices in each can, cooked and ready to eat(we like our crispy, this is more limp), rolled up in paper. The cans will last a decade if kept at normal home temperatures. We pull out the paper and unroll it, then finish crisping up the bacon in a frying pan. It gives off just enough grease to fry eggs, which is great for camping. You can also soak the can in hot water to ease the paper/bacon out of the can.
There's a lot of arguing in the reviews about the pricing of this bacon, but I consider it a good value. Each can contains several pounds (pre-cooked) of bacon, and currently bacon is around $4 per pound at the grocery. Plus being able to store it on a shelf and even eat it right out of the can makes it worth the extra cost.
This canned bacon is a really useful product that we don't ever plan to do without.
