Re-dehydrating bacon - how can I do that?
Iím LOVING what I can dry and preserve with my dehydrator, mostly fruits and vegetables. It means I can add out-of-season veges and fruit to stir fries and slow-cooker meals and add a lovely tasty dimension to the meal.
Recently, Iíve even started experimenting with drying fish and meat, and that works beautifully too!
BUT when I tried this with bacon, I think I didnít do enough research first Ė I simply dried the raw bacon without cooking/frying it first. It has dried beautifully but when I added it to what Iím cooking, I canít taste that lovely bacon flavour.
NOW Iíve discovered that youíre supposed to COOK it before you dry it!
SO, hereís my question/challenge Ö
How can I recover, and do some damage control on this dried bacon so I can enjoy the lovely flavour of the bacon when I add some to whatever Iím cooking?
Could I soak them in water first, pat dry, and then fry in oil? (And then dehydrate again?)
All suggestions, ideas and advice appreciated.
