You have a "bacon section" in your freezer? I think I better have a talk with mine.

I do.
But sometimes the bacon takes up more than the allotted room

Which is more important? Bacon or the other stuff? Get rid of some of the other stuff to make room for more bacon. Geesh! Do I have to teach you everything?

That nice Postmaster still hasn't found my SASSC.


And I have noticed she seems to be wearing a larger dress size.


I have lots of extra space in my freezer if you need it.

And I promise not to eat any.

Just trying to be friendly with an offer of space I'm not using.

That Turtle Burger caught my eye. I googled it to see if it was for real. I am amazed!

I might be run off from this thread, but I don't like bacon. I find it too salty. I will eat it on a BLT because it's with other things. I also like chicken livers wrapped in bacon and broiled. But bacon by itself, no. When I lived with my mother, everything was fried in bacon grease.

Back in the day... when bacon was really salty... I used to buy the less salt version. Even I didn't have a taste for most bacon twenty years ago and would usually order ham or sausage with breakfast.
I know, strange but true story, lol.

"Bacon for Blue crabs, Zagnut."

Deal!


Just tell me how you want them.

I don't think live would be advised unless you want a bushel of dead crabs.

Steamed will take the shipping but I need to know what seasoning you'd like.

Nothing beats them fresh out of the bay so how about you come down for a crab feast with fresh corn and other fresh veggies on the menu. There might also be a few cold beers included.

They don't call this the land of pleasant living for nothing.

But make sure you bring the bacon.

CarolPa,

Oh you do like bacon.

You just don't want it straight up.

That's a redeeming value so you won't be run off the thread.


But if you say you don't like bacon again.

Well, I don't want that, so my lips are sealed! Except when I'm eating or talking, which is most anytime!

I decided to go with the whole side of pork belly this time. Kind of neat the way they tri-fold it for packaging.

bacon, recipe

Makin' Bacon! My first attempt at making my own bacon :pig: I will start this week long process by showing the pics from last night. The pork belly. [ATTACH]17816[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]17818[/ATTACH] The rub, or cure. Sugar- 1/2c + 3TB Kosher salt- 2TB + 2tsp Pepper- 1/2tsp Pink curing salt- 1-1/2tsp [ATTACH]17817[/ATTACH] Placed in a lasagna pan and rubbed all over. [ATTACH]17819[/ATTACH] And then placed into a ziploc bag and back into the pan. This will now be cured for seven days in the refrigerator. During this time it is supposed to prodice liquids which will be "massaged" back into the belly so the cure stays evenly distributed. [ATTACH]17820[/ATTACH] To be continued... 3 stars 1 reviews
