  1. Peameal Bacon: Peameal Bacon is pork loin that is cured and rolled in cornmeal. Normally it is served in Ontario, and is what us in America call “Canadian bacon.” The peameal bacon is sold raw, and, in this recipe, is cooked on the stovetop. You can buy peameal bacon at select butchers. If you must buy online, you can do so here.
  2. Maple Syrup: Because we’re cooking from Canada, I will always recommend true, authentic Canadian maple syrup. I had some Vermont maple syrup in my pantry, so I used that this time around. I wouldn’t recommend using artificial syrup (such as Log Cabin, etc), as it won’t caramelize on the meat as nicely.  
  3. Peameal bacon needs to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit in order to reach a level of wellness safe for consumption.
  4. If you’d like to make your own peameal bacon at home, you can do so by following these instructions.
