Thread: Bacon Facts

    Bacon Facts

    Bacon is eaten with eggs 71% of the time.

    The inflation-adjusted price of bacon per pound has increased by 40% since 1940 (compare that to gasoline which increased by 158% between 2002 and 2012!).

    The oldest way to cure meat is with salt, which removes moisture and seals the surface from bacteria.

    China began curing pork belly with salt in 1500 BC.

    The bacon eating record of 182 slices in 5 minutes was set in 2015! RESPECT.

    Iowa is the largest pork producing state in the U.S.

    The least popular state for bacon is Hawaii.

    There's a Bacon Glacier and a Bacon Creek in Alaska.

    Kansas State University cooked and gave away 300 pounds of bacon at a basketball game in 2013, three times the amount they anticipated. Oddly Kansas is second to Hawaii for bacon popularity as they consume 26% less bacon than the national average.

    Now I'm confused. Is that saying that, when you eat eggs, 71% of the time you are also eating bacon, or is it saying that, when you eat bacon, 71% of the time you are also eating eggs. If it's the latter, then I definitely fall squarely within that statistic.

    That's because they prefer Spam.

    I recently bought an Air Fryer. IMO this was the best way to cook it. No mess and it comes out perfect

    I tried out some vegetarian bacon last year. I didn't really like or not like it. I haven't bought any since then. Last trip to Mazatlan the buffet didn't have bacon or sausage at breakfast. My friends had to order side plates of the stuff.

    I have a bacon related question for those of you that cook with a bacon press. Where do you put the press when you are flipping and draining the fry pan? It has bacon grease and makes a mess when I put it down but I can't drain while holding it upright.

    I haven't used a bacon press in decades. Bacon is such a mess than I rarely eat any nowadays. Last I heard it's not good for you.
