My sister in law Gale and I canned her some Roma tomatoes and bacon when I was there. Richard had picked her up some very nice Roma tomatoes and I helped her can them. They were very nice solid tomatoes and looked beautiful when done. I told her about a blog where I saw that they canned some bacon so she picked some up when we went to the store and she canned it. I found the recipe and directions on this blog: http://www.paratusfamiliablog.com/2010/06/canning-bacon.html
I am going to can a pound or two and try it and if it is good I will pick up some more bacon when we go down to the Arthur Amish; I can get some of the 10 pound boxes for $16.95 and can it. Canning it verses freezing it would be much better. Years ago when we used to tent camp we purchased canned bacon and it was good stuff. It came in 1 lb cans and it was excellent. I looked up canned bacon and the one we used to get is no longer made. You can find another brand but at almost $10 a pound that would be cost prohibited. I will keep you posted when I make it and taste it.
