Re: The Mallorca Squad

As much as I would love to share a voyage or two with Salty, You have to remember that he is from California.
Buying a vessel with him is fraught with unforseen issues that may arise.
He may indeed turn Vegan on me in a flash. He already does not like fluorescent vegetables. It makes him go EEK!
We have different tastes in vessels. I fear a Catamaran may not be top on his list.

And finally, forever and always, he is a SALTY MONKEY!!

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Wikipedia to the rescue...
Quote:
"Canadian bacon" is United States usage for a form of roughly cylindrical fully cooked back bacon, usually smoked, trimmed into medallions, and thickly sliced.[3] The term "Canadian bacon" is not actually used in Canada, and the product is generally known simply as "back bacon", while "bacon" standing alone refers to the same streaky pork belly bacon as in the United States.[3] "Canadian" bacon is made only from the lean eye of the loin and is ready to eat; this preparation is closer to ham than standard North American bacon.[3]
Roasted unsliced peameal back bacon

The product may have arisen from a unique form of back bacon which emerged in Southern Ontario called "peameal bacon",[citation needed] which is unsmoked wet cured pork loin trimmed like "Canadian bacon" and traditionally rolled in ground dried yellow peas to extend its shelf life. Today it is generally rolled in yellow cornmeal.

Us Canucks call it back bacon.

Down south the same thing is called Canadian Bacon.

From Wikipedia:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back_bacon

"Canadian bacon" is United States usage for a form of roughly cylindrical fully cooked back bacon, usually smoked, trimmed into medallions, and thickly sliced.[3] The term "Canadian bacon" is not actually used in Canada, and the product is generally known simply as "back bacon", while "bacon" standing alone refers to the same streaky pork belly bacon as in the United States.[3] "Canadian" bacon is made only from the lean eye of the loin and is ready to eat; this preparation is closer to ham than standard North American bacon.[3]

I was pretty shocked the first time I was down in Florida and someone ordered Canadian bacon for breakfast because I had no idea what they're talking about until I saw it.

Phfft... I'm a Canadian. I know my back bacon. And have a German heritage. You know by reputation only the Dutch are more stubborn.

only by a small percentage point do the Dutch win
The difference is the cutting point (nearer the ham) and that the Canadian Back Bacon is smoked.

I actually like it. Not really a lover of lightly cooked Brit full back.

I would always go for smoked streaky-'American Bacon' kind of..and crisp it.
