Gilding the lily….

….that’s pretty much what I think about bacon recipes.  Really can’t imagine anything improving the flavor and aroma of lovely Tamworth bacon (from Thistle Hill, of course).

But recently the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund had a “Baconpalooza” event at Polyface Farms in Virginia…and 250 people jammed Joel Salatin’s farm near Staunton to bear witness.  The winner was Russ Crandall, who blogs under the name “The Domestic Man”.

Maybe some cold and slow winter day, I’ll try it.
