Sausage firm brings home bacon with food awards
A brand new Cornish bacon has been launched and has already secured two food industry awards.
The Cornish Sweetheart streaky bacon, developed by The Kernow Sausage Company, picked up a British Pig Executive Silver Award and a Gold Great Taste Award even before it hit the shelves.
The unusual streaky bacon is marinated in molasses and chilli and cured for six weeks, a process which gives the bacon its distinctive colouring. Gavin Roberts, of the Roseland-based company, said: "We gave it the name Cornish Sweetheart on the grounds that it is very Cornish in its provenance and it has a sweet flavour.
"The bacon is made using traditional methods and it is the addition of the marinade that makes a big difference.

"It gives it a sweet edge and a really interesting depth of flavour. The combination of sweet and hot is a winner in my book."
