Is there anything bacon can't do?

Unfortunately, they also sell absinthe lollipops, which could only taste tongue-murderingly awful.

I saw that on Daily Candy yesterday. One thing the internet has taught me: bacon is so much more versatile than I ever expected.

I have two bottles of absinthe here. I'm still kinda afraid of them. I love the bottles tho.

Eat a BLT with fries covered in bacon salt, and for dessert bacon chocolate chip cookies, followed by this bacon lollipop. Perfect.

Indeed. Uncured bacon, fried up in a cast-iron pan, served on a warm plate with some organic maple syrup. It's a luxurious and beautiful thing.

Agreed.

By far the best dessert I've ever had is the honey-bacon-apricot cornbread with maple ice cream drizzled with hot maple syrup and chunks of unbelievably perfect bacon from here. This is an adaptation of the recipe, but the real thing has more bacon and a hell of a lot more butter.

I've watched them prepare it in the open kitchen there:

Melt butter in pan. Add square of cornbread, put pan in oven to heat cornbread.

In another pan, fry large dice (1/8" or so) pieces of bacon in butter.

Add maple syrup to second pan.

Reduce a bit.

Top cornbread with maple icecream, then drizzle with butter / syrup / bacon.

It is the perfect dessert.

Well, bacon is the gateway meat. That's how I convert vegetarians back to the side of truth, justice and the carnivorous way.

Four conversions and counting...

Although it had nothing to do with dersins, I stopped being a vegatarian because I missed bacon. You just can't fake that stuff. Some might say I'm easily swayed, but those people don't have a goddamn clue about how wonderful bacon is.

Oh, kosher_jenny, that cannot possibly be difficult. I'm thinking soak some cooked bacon and maybe a dash of hickory smoke flavoring in vodka for a while, then chill it and skim the grease off the top. Or leave it. Why not? BACON COCKTAILS! Yes, please! Rimmed with bacon salt on the glass.

This could be good. My roommate gave me chocolate with little bits of bacon in it (for Christmas actually) and the salty and sweet tastes worked well together. Same is true for fried bacon and peanut butter sandwiches. On the other hand, a friend of mine sent me some bacon mints and they were not good at all. One of the most terrible things I've ever tasted.

I would think that bacon flavored lollipops wouldn't really convey the full awesomeness that is bacon. It would lose the crunch, and the smell, etc.
