The only pork I can stand is bacon, superwell done. I don't really like the texture of pork, too squishy for my tastes. Ham is good, but only super
dry, yeah I am weird lol. I am pretty sure it's a law in Canada you have to like bacon.
Yeah, but that's Canadian bacon, which is not at all like, umm, er, uh, bacon bacon.
It's really more like thinly sliced ham. It doesn't curl
up. It doesn't have the same smell when frying. It doesn't turn super crispy. It doesn't taste the same. It's not the same size and could come in
a Spam (r) can.
Now I'm cool if you like either type, or both! This isn't about which bacon is "the best!" at all. It's about why these two cuts of pork are
called by the same name when their inherent characteristics are so far apart. It's like calling a beet and a carrot by the same name because they are
both root plants.
