Jowl bacon is a special cut of pork taken from the cheeks of the hog that, as the name implies, tastes just like bacon. A historically significant cut in the South, pork jowls have traditionally been added to black-eyed peas and eaten on New Year's Day to ensure prosperity in the coming year. Jowl Bacon also makes a flavorful base for wilted greens and can be used in place of bacon in any recipe that calls for it. Try it yourself and experience the awesome flavor that this southern secret has to offer.
