Peameal Bacon is Toronto's signature dish. this is a wet cured (salt water brine) unsmoked back bacon made from trimmed lean boneless pork loin rolled in cornmeal. It was invented by a St. Lawrence Market pork packer William Davies, who came to Canada from England in 1854. It has become one of the most sought after foods of the market. Included with every purchase is the story of peameal and how we became to be known as Hogtown. Sold sliced in 1 LB vacuum sealed packages.
