.. of making 5 lbs of bacon. I didn’t realize I would wanna eat it all pretty much immediately, but here I am, racking my brain for more bacon heavy recipes. Last night I made carbonara, which turned out pretty fabulously, if I do say so myself. In retrospect, the bacon could have perhaps been smokier, but.. then I have to get a smoker type device. There is no room for a smoker on my patio. I assure you.
Having cured my own bacon and salmon, made my own cheese, made my own pasta, made my own butter, made my own tortillas, etc. I am almost at a loss as to what I can conquer next. Any suggestions, keeping in mind that I hate baking with a deep, fiery passion?
I think maybe next I will make some homemade scrapple, followed by potato chips. The whole kettle frying thing seems interesting. But what then? Jam? Pickling? I dunno. Ideas, please!
PS – If anyone mentions meat jelly, they’re banned from life. 😀
