Polish bacon doesn't fry up?

raw has the best and most flavor.

Eating raw bacon is a very bad idea for a whole lot of reasons, stomach cancer (a lot of that in Poland due to the processed cold meats) being high on the list.

At least the medical treatment is free here in Europe - a good thing you aren't stuck in Mexico or America or somewhere like that.

Europe is free of the trichonosis worm so even if it had been raw, you would not stand much chance of being infected. Trichonosis is laregely a hot climate disease such as the semi arid regions of the Middle East, hence the reason it was proscribed by both Jewish and Muslims alike.

There are also dangers from toxoplasmosis and tapeworms.

well if we're going in that directions one should not eat Steak Tartar because of the dangers of Taenia saginata (beef worms). Very hard to get rid off.

Steak tartare may be nice, but it's best avoided.

Steak tartare may be nice

I only have it with liberal amounts of vodka... (the only time I drink vodka now)

It seems to be a thing in Kielce so I sometimes have it there. Otherwise no, partly due to the vodka which I can live without.

It's best to have it only in places that sell a lot.

Yep, I'll be bringing some Irish bacon rashers with me on da Ryanair next week when I head over to the gaff in Mazuria.

We'll chew them slowly.
