It’s bacon flipping day!

 We’ve reached the halfway point of the whole bacon experiment, which means it’s time to flip it over, and move the seasonings around a little bit. Had to phrase it that way because any other words I could think of to describe made it sound kind of illicit. I mean, I like bacon and all but I don’t think I’m quite ready for that kind of relationship…

I digress.

Good news! The bacon looks really bacon-y! It’s giving off some liquid, which I suppose is normal with the amound of salt I put on it. I really hope this turns out well.. or edible. I will settle for edible but considering I blew all of Saturday looking for curing salts, I’m really really hoping for fantastic. Both of the girls (cats) came to attention when I pulled it out of the fridge. That has to mean something good, right?

I don’t have much else to report. Roy has been working 16 hour days wrapping up a movie so I am basically hanging out with the cats when I get home from work. While the little one appreciates my cooking, I’ve not been ultra motivated since she also eats paper with equal vigor and enjoyment. Time to eat some of the left overs again.

As you were.

  1. Wow, the bacon looks seriously amazing. I till can’t believe it’s possible to make in a standard refrigerator in the modern age. Look forward to seeing this soon, how far till its ready??? 🙂

  2. I’m so excited to see how it turns out!

    I have a good friend who makes his own pancetta and exchanges it for goods and services. I hope you realize that you have created your own currency. Pork, especially cured, is legal tender the world over.
