Products - Bacon - Natural Sunday Bacon

Natural Sunday Bacon

Declared by The New York Times to be, “…superb, filled with the flavor and aroma that makes everyone gravitate towards the kitchen,” our Natural Sunday Bacon possesses all the flavor of old fashioned country bacon without added nitrites or chemical preservatives. At Applegate, we take our bacon seriously. If there were such a thing as a PhD in Bacon, we would be the school that issues it. We use select cuts of antibiotic-free pork, and season it with natural ingredients like sea salt. Then we smoke it for hours over hardwood. (In this context, smoking is a great habit, and one we will never give up.) Whether you’re preparing an old-fashioned country breakfast or an elegant dinner salad, Sunday Bacon is a perfect choice for people as serious about taste as they are about healthy bacon.

I love Applegate products, and we've been loyal customers for years. The Natural Sunday Bacon is a favorite, but, for the past month or so, each package has been so fatty. I love knowing that the product is nitrate-free & gluten-free, but I don't... read more

My first time having any bacon without the nitrates. I had very low expectations, and am simply blown away by the results. It's not as crisp as the bacon I'm used to, but the taste is fantastic. I'm permanently switched. Thanks!

...but there is only one problem...I have to drive 22 miles to buy it, my local stores don't carry it! I guess it helps me not eat too much, which I would do if I could.

absolutely the best bacon, and reasonably priced for the quality. We're never without it. For Sundays and any day.

I have been buying a local store brand of naturally cured bacon. For some reason, as it cooks, it releases vapors that cause me to choke and have difficulty breathing. That CAN'T be good! I was very pleased to discover that this does not happen... read more
