Every time I visit my hometown, Pottstown, I’m sure to make a stop at Zern’s Farmers Market. They have the cheapest produce, amazing butchers, & everything (literally everything!) you could imagine. I had Lindsay, my best friend from home, and her beautiful daughter, Franchesca, in tow so it was a quick trip. I look forward to next time so I can shoot more photos to share the wonders of a Zern’s experience with you all!
One item I’m sure to pick up on every visit is Triple Smoked Bacon. There’s really nothing that compares to the taste & freshness. I could smell the smokey essence the whole car ride back to Philly! Seeing that I stock up between visits, I usually cook a pound to eat fresh and freeze the rest. I wish I could find where I learned this trick, but when I search “bacon” in my history, far too many websites come up!
To freeze bacon for easy access, I roll up each slice & place into an airtight storage container. I prefer this approach as it’s more green versus separating slices with wax paper & using storage baggies. With this “roll & freeze” method, you can easily pull out as many pieces as you’d like & they’re not stuck together.
Enjoy bacon & enjoy it often! It’s good for your soul.
