Bacon

I'm fairly wimpy, but I am leaning towards Lisa's more savory version, just with one chipotle. Both she and Lorraine do amazing, dependable recipes, so it's tough to choose. I will probably add a touch of maple or brown sugar to mine and basically combine the two.

Oooooh, it looks like liquid bacon!! It's not all that hard to do either but reading the recipe.

The chipotle version is probably a bit much for my wimpy spice palette, but the other looks good with the vinegar and syrup.

I will have to double check WF next time I am there. I know WF does things regionally, as we saw with some areas having Kinky Curly and others not having it. I guess the same applies with the Vosges bars. I may have just missed them.

RCC-I wanted to update that I found this brand at my more local Whole Foods. In the past I was looking in the aisle where they have other choc bars, etc. But this Whole
Food has a choc section near the cheese, wine area and these bars were there!!! I am so excited!

Oh bacon, you are the gift that keeps on giving. Aside from the leaf lard I keep in my freezer for pie, roll, and biscuit baking, I saved a bunch of fat from a pork belly (which is of course bacon) I cooked. I just had a runny egg fried in some of the fat. Mmm, such porky, bacony goodness plus eggy goodness all sopped up by some pita. I could go for another!

I just can't get the caramel bacon bites out of my mind. OMG they sound so good.

SWEDISH GINGER COOKIES

3/4 c bacon fat/drippings 3/4 t salt
1 c sugar 2 t baking soda
4 T molasses 1 t ground ginger
1 large egg 1 t ground cloves
2 c flour 1 t ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350.
Mix fat and sugar, beat in molasses and egg.
Add remaining ingredients.
Chill dough a little til easy to work with.
Roll into small balls (1 inch or so), roll in sugar, put on ungreased cookie sheets (don't use silpat/silicone liners) two inches apart.
Bake 10-12 min til brown and cracked on top (keep an eye on them, they go from brown to burnt quickly).

These have a crisp but tender texture, are salty and spicy and sweet, and I just love em. Making my mouth water thinking about them.

My sister called yesterday to tell me she was making a BLT and by the time she was done cooking a pound of bacon she had eaten most of it and barely had enough left for a sandwich. We love our bacon.
