can't you buy proper bacon in the states but they call it "canadian bacon"? That's what I read on wikipedia or something.

My friend also said when he was there they went to a special importer shop that had british bacon.

Canadian bacon is more like ham, its too thick.

As for the shops they are ridiculously priced, $10 for 5 bangers which is a bit much. Otherwise does anyone know the names of sausages that taste similar?

I took delivery this week of my share of six piggies I helped raise over the last year or so.

Chops, mince, loin, fillet, leg, back bacon, belly bacon, sausages...

My freezer is nearly full...God knows what I'll do next month when I get a dozen chickens...

Ah i see, all i needed :)

Seems a good idea

If you approach anyone with a farm, or smallholding and enquire about "buying half an animal"

You will be suprised at the amount of people local to you who will be willing to sell you the meat (I'm assuming you live in the countryside.. like me)

Colchester isnt too big, and i live just on the edge :)

I may just force my parents to do this, i imagine it saves quite a bit of cash with the price of meat these days?
