Bacon = Freedom, Lettuce = Love, Tomato = Passion

Um.... Lettuce=Love? No, no, no. A nice single malt scotch and a pound of fine chocolate is much more likely to get you somewhere! :biggrin:

For those who want all things bacon...

I recently bought (as a joke present for a vegetarian friend) a automobile air-freshener that was bacon scented. It was made of that same material that those pine tree air-fresheners are, and was formed in the shape of a couple of strips of bacon. My friend was truly disgusted, which meant that the joke succeeded!

Can't tell you where you can buy them, but try stores that sell cards and useless gifts.

Combine the three different candles to make a BLT!

p.s. there is a bunch of other great bacon related stuff on this site.

And to go with them, you can get Tomato and/or Lettuce cologne at Demeter. I was shocked to discover they haven't done bacon yet - in fact, their line is notably lacking in meat scents - but they do carry quite a few other items of interest to this crowd - Parsley, Shortbread, Dulce de Leche, Lobster, etc. Maybe we should mount a campaign to persuade them to start a butcher's/deli line; imagine being able to dab a touch of Veal Scallopine or perhaps Kosher Salami behind one's ears! Then again, what could be better than the original - a delicate shpritz of Bacon in the hollow of the collar-bone.

(BTW I have tried both the Tomato and the Dirt scents, and they are remarkably well done - subtle and satisfying and not at all sweet.)

I was once asked the name of a parfum I was wearing ... without skipping a beat, I said "Shake'n'Bake" .. sadly, the listener believed me! :hmmm:

and then there is my gumbo deodorant .... okay, I'll stop .. :wink:

I'd love to smell the bacon "flavored" one. But I pity the fool who'd pay over ten bucks for one smokey ham-scented votive. Looks like you have to buy the set anyway. Think I'll get a shot glass, some kite string and a pound of Oscar Meyer's thick cut and make my own. :laugh:

In foodservice industry magazines the last couple of months or so, there's been an ad for bacon (no memory of brand) WITH A SCENT STRIP. but it's nasty. like liquid smoke on paper, nothing bacon-y about it.

...yet....everytime i see it, i pull the strip open and yes...i smell it.

Wow... thank you. A compliment not to be taken lightly in any case, but especially not when it comes from the author of "happy underpants"! I'm honored. :blush:

      I have been making pancetta for the first time. I have experience with the curing process doing things like bacon and cold smoked salmon in the past but this is the first time I have ever hanged anything.
       
      After a week of curing it has had 11 days  hanging so far (I was planning on taking it to 28 days hanging) Although I foolishly forgot to weigh it. 
      It smells really good like some awesome salami and the outer rim of the pancetta looks lovely and rich and dark.
      It was a recipe by Kuhlman in one of their charcuterie books.
      But when I inspected it today it had the mould growing on it as in the pics below. I have since scrubbed the mould off with white wine vinegar and returned it to the cellar. Is it wise to continue?

      Following my posting a supermarket bought roast rabbit in the Dinner topic, @Anna N expressed her surprise at my local supermarkets selling such things just like in the west supermarkets sell rotisserie chickens. I promised to photograph the pre-cooked food round these parts.

      I can't identify them all, so have fun guessing!

      More pre-cooked food to come. Apologies for some bady lit images - I guess the designers didn't figure on nosy foreigners inspecting the goods and disseminating pictures worldwide.

      Normally, the local market has bresaola in tissue paper thin slices. Today they also had packages in small dice, probably the leftover ends, bits and pieces. Any thoughts on how to enjoy them, besides nibbling on it? 
       
      Thank you!

      Linguine with Squash, Goat Cheese and Bacon
      Serves 4 as Main Dishor 6 as Side.
      I stumbled on this while looking for recipes with goat cheese. It's from Real Simple (and it is!). I couldn't imagine the combination of flavors, but it was wonderful.

      6 slices bacon
      1 2- to 2 ½-pound butternut squash—peeled, seeded, and diced (4 to 5 cups)
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1-1/2 c chicken broth
      1 tsp kosher salt
      4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled
      1 lb linguine, cooked
      1 T olive oil
      2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

      Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, then crumble or break into pieces; set aside. Drain all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet. Add the squash and garlic to the skillet and sauté over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth and salt. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the squash is cooked through and softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Add half the goat cheese and stir well to combine. Place the cooked linguine in a large bowl. Stir the sauce into the linguine and toss well to coat. Drizzle with the olive oil and add the reserved bacon, the remaining goat cheese, and the pepper. Serve immediately.

      Duck Leg Confit Potstickers
      Serves 4 as Appetizer.
      These are seriously decadent potstickers.
      I devised this recipe as part of a Duck Three Ways dinner wherein over the course of three days I dismantled a whole duck using various parts for various things, including rendering fat, making stock and confiting the legs. If you're super-ambitious and do it my way, you'll have duck stock and duck fat on hand as this recipe calls for; otherwise, substitute chicken stock and peanut oil or whatever you have on hand.

      2 confited duck legs, bones discarded and meat shredded
      2 c sliced shiitake caps
      1/2 c sliced scallions
      splash fish sauce
      1 tsp grated fresh ginger
      1 tsp grated fresh garlic
      pinch Five Spice powder
      pot sticker wrappers
      3 c duck stock
      3 T duck fat

      1. Saute shiitakes in duck fat over high heat until most liquid has evaporated and they are beginning to brown.
      Meanwhile, reduce about 1 C duck stock in a small saucepan over medium heat until it's almost syrupy in consistency and tastes sweet.
      Also, warm a couple of cups of unreduced duck stock over low heat in another saucepan.
      2. Combine mushrooms, duck meat, scallions, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and Five Spice powder in a bowl.
      3. Place a teaspoon or so of the duck mixture in the center of a potsticker wrapper; wet half of the edge with water and seal, pinching and pleating one side.
      If you prepare more potstickers than you're going to want to eat, they can be frozen on cookie sheets then put into freezer bags for later.
      4. When all potstickers are sealed, heat a flat-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, melt enough duck fat to thinly cover the bottom, then add the potstickers.
      5. Cook undisturbed until the bottoms are browned, 3-5 minutes, then enough unreduced duck stock to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2 inch deep and cover the pan.
      6. Cook until most liquid is absorbed, then uncover and cook until remaining liquid evaporates.
      While potstickers are cooking, make a dipping sauce by combining the reduced duck stock 1:1 with soy sauce, then adding a little rice vinegar, brown sugar (if the duck stock isn't sweet enough), and sesame oil.
      Serve potstickers immediately when done.
