Maple Syrup is commonly used as a flavoring during bacon cures in Canada. Bacon Day Canada is celebrated in Canada by having the right amount of bacon in various forms.
History of Canadian Bacon Day
According to rumors, Canadian bacon may have once been known as "bean-powder bacon". This is because the ham is prepared with brine and then rolled in pre-ground dried yellow peas to extend the shelf life of the meat. The versatility of the product makes it quite popular and useful, especially for those who are in a hurry to prepare a meat-heavy meal.
Today, Canadian bacon is still cured, but it is often rolled in golden cornmeal instead of dried yellow beans. But the savory ingredients remain the same - cut from the loin and served uncooked into thick, round slices. This is a leaner portion of pork than standard bacon, making it a slightly healthier option for those trying to cut down on the amount of fat they eat.
If you go to Canada and ask for Canadian bacon, you might get some confused looks. In Canada, it is commonly known as 'back bacon', or simply 'ham'. If you've just ordered bacon in Canada, you'll likely get pork belly slices just like the ones you used to make in the United States.
Canadian Bacon Day was celebrated to honor this delicious, versatile meat.
