Bacon jam!

Here's a dilemma:
A great friend invite you over for tea and when quizzed about what's on offer the response is "bacon jam". What do you do next?

Clearly, you high-tail it over to his place to try out his concoction. Unfortunately in my haste I forgot to take my camera so there aren't any pictures. Fortunately I found this article which (as well as being very good) has some ace pictures:

So, what can I tell you about bacon jam? Well, having read the list of ingredients and the cooking method, I was a little dubious. However, I have to admit that it was damn fine stuff. We had it with cheese and bread. (This was the only potential use I could come up with given the constraints of my mates' empty fridge. My thinking was along the lines of that anything you could do with pickle you could probably do with bacon jam and I think I was right). Incredibly smokey and it managed to pull off that amazing trick of being sweet but intensely savoury at the same time. It was undoubtedly a success.

I guess it just goes to prove the adage "bacon makes everything better". I just can't decide whether to make some myself.

Eat your books

I came Eat Your Books the other day and I quite like it, I think.

The idea is that there is an online archive of recipes in from cookery books you own. Thus you can find recipes in books you own as you'll have you're own "virtual bookshelf".

It would help in times when I've forgotten to write a shopping list or when people ask for a recipe (thus saving me time in photocopying or writing it out).

I haven't signed up yet, but may well do...
