I think I could try that! Thanks. My husband likes it salty, but I could just soak and dry mine.

It works for most things that are too salty, I desalt green olives by soaking them, too. The things you learn when you have salt sensitive blood pressure.

What do you do with the olives? I don't want to desalt the whole jar because DH eats them too and likes the salt. I like olives and they are very healthy.

I want my bacon crisp like potato chips. And don't be adding any sweet flavours to it.

I like crisp bacon. And if it's a bit burnt, that's OK.

Thanks for the soaking tip, PF! Great idea, and I need to remember about the olive soaking!

I am with you there. I hate maple flavored bacon.

I don't mind a little sweetness to my bacon, but I never buy maple flavored anything. Maple can get overbearing quick.

The best bacon I ever tasted was organic. How was it better? It just tasted like bacon, but more so, and didn't have those chemical tastes that we don't usually notice. I bought organic bacon again and it was just good, not spectacular like that first package (different brand, I think).

I agree, but you should know I make a great maple walnut ice cream.
