Thank you Noah! I bet your British bacon is tasty! I got the recipe from a Canadian friend I really love the stuff. :)

Thank you Tish! The American version of Canadian bacon is usually smoked. Canadian version of peameal bacon is pickle brine cured and is rolled in yellow peameal but cornmeal is a lot easier to use. Then it's usually sliced and fried instead of smoking. I've smoked them before but really like sliced and fried better.
I DO make the American version of Canadian bacon too... it's good stuff.

It's called Peameal bacon as that's what it was originally rolled in. Corn meal is the standard these days and has been for as long as I've been around.

What you yanks call Canadian bacon is a cured and smoked pork loin. We don't see that much up here and certainly don't call it that.
Peameal bacon is very common, in fact I have a small roast of it thawing for a dinner sometime this week. You will quite often see a local service group offering up peameal bacon sandwiches as a fund raiser.
Thank you Mac!! Thanks for the info too. I really love peameal bacon sliced and fried. I can see how the sandwiches would be great for a fund raiser!
Thanks again...
