Things you didn't know about bacon
关于培根,那些你不知道的事
For many of us, there’s nothing like the smell of bacon sizzling away in your kitchen on a Saturday morning. Or a Sunday morning. Or any day, really. Whether you like yours super crispy and served with eggs and toast or maple-glazed and wrapped around your Thanksgiving turkey, if you’re a red-blooded American you probably love this salty, cured pork. According to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, pork ranks third in U.S. meat consumption (behind beef and chicken); Americans consume about 51 pounds of pork products per person per year. It’s estimated that 18 of those pounds is in the form of bacon.

对我们很多人而言,没有比闻到滋滋作响的培根在星期六清晨的厨房里散发香味更美好的事了。或者星期日。呃,实际上每天都能闻到是最好不过了。无论你是喜欢用酥脆的培根搭配鸡蛋、土司,还是蘸上枫糖放在感恩节烤鸡边,只要你是一个精力充沛的美国人,你就很可能喜欢这熏制的咸猪肉。据美国农业经济研究服务部的数据,猪肉在美国肉类消费中排列第三(仅次于牛肉和鸡肉);美国人均每年消耗51磅猪肉制品。据统计其中有十八磅是用于制作培根。


Now that we’ve established that we love to eat bacon, how much do we actually know about it?

我们爱吃培根,但我们真正对它的了解有多少呢?


Though there are many types of bacon eaten around the world, the word “bacon” generally refers to cured pig belly, back, or side, and it often comes from a young animal (a 6- to 7-month-old pig). Bacon that is made from a different animal (which technically isn’t bacon at all) or from a different part of the pig requires a specific name like “turkey bacon” or “pork shoulder bacon.” The most common pork bacon in the United States is what the British call “streaky bacon” — skinned, cured, and smoked pork side, so named for its distinct red and white striped appearance.

虽然世界上有许多种培根,但“培根一词主要指熏制的猪腩肉,背脊肉或五花肉,且常取自较为年轻(6至7月大)的幼猪。用其他肉类或猪其他部位的肉做的培根(严格意义上根本就不算培根了)会有另一个名字叫做“火鸡培根”或者“猪肩肉培根”。美国最常见的培根是英国人所称的“五花熏培根”(streaky bacon)——经过去皮烟熏的五花肉,之所以叫它五花肉,是因为其红白相间,条纹清晰的外观。


Regardless of where it comes from, bacon is full of smoky, salty flavor. It can be cooked and served as-is, or it can be used to enhance another dish. Chopped bacon can be cooked in a pan and used to flavor sauces, soups, pastas, and more; cooked, crumbled bacon can be added to baked goods like chocolate chip cookies or banana muffins for a savory twist on a classic sweet; and strips of bacon can be wrapped around roasts, vegetables, and fish before they’re cooked. Any way you use it, bacon will add tons of delicious flavor to your cooking; just be sure to adjust the salt in your finished dish since bacon contributes saltiness as well.

无论采用何种肉,培根都有着浓郁的烟熏咸风味。培根可以单独料理食用,也可以拿来佐餐,为其它菜增添风味。碎培根可以用平底锅煎制,也可以用来给沙司,汤,意面等调味;熟的碎培根也可以加到如朱古力豆饼干和香蕉小松饼之类的烘烤类食品上来使传统的甜味来一个美味的转变;也可以把培根条包裹在生的烤肉,蔬菜和鱼肉上再烹饪。无论你怎么使用它,培根都能为你的菜肴增添极佳的风味;只要注意调整加入菜肴里的盐量因为培根本身就已经有咸味了。
