This delicious bacon recipe come courtesy of West-Country curers Case & Sons, proud holders of the royal warrant. Case & Sons Wiltshire cure bacon was first sold in the small town of Trowbridge in 1877 when Harvey Case opened the doors to his family butchers. After 130 years in the business and only a slight geographical shift to neighbouring Wiveliscombe, their century-old Wiltshire cure recipe has hardly changed.
