"get Fat not from pork fat, and its quantity" (proverb). Real lard is the subcutaneous fat with the skin, and the most useful, say nutritionists, it is in a salt form. That doesn't sound appetizing... I don't eat... And smoked bacon - so plaque cholesterol a little if not all the arteries... and it's against me... Only I'm from Ukraine! national product need to eat! necessary - so necessary... ;-) choose a kind of compromise: boiled bacon... as strange as it sounds, and even onion skins :-) in appearance very similar to the appetizing smoked with amber crust... and if the brine is to add liquid smoke, and the taste and is fragrant, soft with the smoke...
