How to de-salt bacon

If done correctly, you can de-salt your bacon and still have great flavor.

Place bacon in a heat-bowl.

Pour some freshly boiled water over the bacon till it is well-covered. Give it a stir and let it sit for 2 minutes.

The bacon oils will rise.

It is now ready to have the water drained off. Repeat this again, this time leaving the bacon in the water for a minute. This should be sufficient to remove the ‘excess’ salt while preserving the taste.

Rinse and drain the bacon then pat it dry.
