A very good friend of ours once quipped, “Hey honey, let’s have the Chateaubriand and lobster for dinner tonight, and save the bacon for a special occasion.”
Sound absurd? Not so much for die-hard bacon lovers.
The very mention of the word bacon in public is bound to attract attention and start necks craning among those within earshot. To say that we are crazy for all things bacon is a crazy understatement. From delectable to disgusting, the uses of bacon among zealots and zanies alike know no bounds.
But for the serious food adventurer, homemade bacon is the end of the journey that begins with fresh pork belly.
