This is how boiled bacon would have been made in Mrs Beeton's day. As with most of her recipes, there is a good deal of common sense and it is still relevant today.

Method

  1. As bacon is frequently excessively salty ,let it be soaked in warm water for an hour or two previous to dressing it up.
  2. Then pare off the rusty parts and scrape the underside and rind as clean as possible.
  3. Put it into a saucepan of cold water, let it come gradually to a boil and as the scum rises to the surface of the water, remove it.
  4. Let it simmer very gently until it is thoroughly done.
  5. Remove and drain, remove the skin and sprinkle with a few raspings and garnish with tufts of cauliflower or brussels sprouts.
  6. When served alone, young and tender broad beans or green peas are the usual accompaniments.
