black chef's $1,000,000 idea...

those of us who live in the deep south ALWAYS keep our bacon drippings for later... to either saute' green beans or start a deeply-flavored roux for gumbos... so, here's my idea:

instead of butter flavored crisco, etc., how about someone, somewhere making a BACON-FLAVORED COOKING OIL?

Porkfat rules!

A lot of hungry bellies have been filled on bacon grease, powdered milk and self-rising flour.

OK... let's call Crisco and let them know that the amateur and want-to-be chefs of this board WANT a bacon flavored crisco.

and somebody needs to contact a good olive oil company too... i'm sure there is somebody that can use a bacon flavored olive oil.

ooooh my grandpa would love you if you made bacon-flavored EVOO that was good for him. I think the idea is brilliant! Nothing beats frying something in bacon grease!!!

Well - since real bacon drippin's are all natural I find little incentive to partake of something "synthetic" ... but I guess if you really wanted to mess with mother nature it wouldn't be that hard - although it's not going to taste as good as the real thing.

Take some Bac-O bits ... and either grind them up in a coffee grinder (reserved for herbs and spices) or use a mortar and pestle - and grind up 2-3 tablespoons worth of "fony bacon" powder per cup of oil. Then, in a cold saucepan - add 1 cup Pure Olive Oil (NOT EVOO - the flavor would detract from the pseudo bacon flavor) or Crisco - the powdered Bac-O bits ... heat until the oil begins to "shimmer", stir, and then cover, remove from the heat, and let steep for about 30-minutes. You should then have "artifically bacon- flavored soybean" flavored oil. Yum!

You might have to experiment with the exact proportions ... this is just an "off the top of my head" idea on how to make synthetic "taste something like" bacon fat.

How about real bacon drippings sold in a jar in the dairy case? Something along those lines? Great idea!
