Bacon Pieces

€7.99 per kg
Bacon pieces are freshly cured pork cut into small cubes to accompany a traditional Irish coddle. At FX Buckley we cure our own bacon with our own traditional recipe.

Coddle is one of the best Irish comfort foods. It’s a hearty, nutritious, mouth-watering stew-like dish full of taste and flavour. Although it is best made with a good stock - water in which a ham has been boiled, or even a ham bone - a light stock cube will substitute. It’s made with boiled pork sausage, bacon pieces (or rashers) sliced or diced potatoes and onions cooked in the stock produced by boiling the rashers and sausages and flavoured only with salt, pepper, and parsley.

Cooking time is approximately 5 minutes boiling the meat in an open lidded pot to produce the stock and then maybe an hour or so until all the ingredients have been combined in a covered pot.
