In the restaurant at Ballymaloe we serve Bacon Chop with Irish Whiskey Sauce, but it is also delicious served just with Fried Banana.
Use freshly cured green bacon. Cover the piece of bacon with cold water. Bring to the boil. If the bacon is salty, throw out the water and start again; you may need to do this twice or in extreme cases three times. Boil for 30 minutes approx. or until it is three-quarters cooked. Remove the rind and. trim away any surplus fat. Slice into chops
For a special treat, serve with Irish Whiskey Sauce.
