What damned fool was it that decided to make bacon out of a turkey? Heard  that line in an all black movie once and laughed my head off.

Second try at this post. First one went to the wrong place.

Many thanks!  I think I'll start the soaking tonight.

As for differences in food....I haven't been able to drink anything stronger than a 4oz glass of very dry champagne once in a while for 40 years.  I get migraines from alcohol.  Actually, they are histamine headaches, but it's the same mechanism as migraines....and they sometimes have lasted for days.

Fish and shellfish, which I have loved all my life, triggers gout.

T'ain't much fun, this aging thing.  About the only benefit is that I get to say what I think without causing an uproar....

Patricia, you silly thing, we don't all have to like, or eat, the same things....wouldn't things be boring if we did?

I have been meaning to ask you about adding baking soda and vinegar to bean-soaking water....HOW MUCH of each per quart? I usually soak a lb of beans in 3 quarts of cold water overnight.

(And doesn't mixing vinegar with baking soda ADD gas?  I mean, if you mix the two with nothing else, it fizzes violently.  Makes a handy drain cleaner, for one thing.)

Patricia, I know what you mean because of having to give up those delicious flavors offered by single malt whisky, dark red wine and beer from local brewers. 

Medicine and alcohol do not mix well and there is some organ down there in my belly that really gives me a kick when I try to cheat.

I would only do this for you, Patricia. (And you do have mitigating circumstances.)

I never bought into the "fat is evil" myth. 

I have always loved pork ... ham, chops, tenderloin, BACON, fried pork rinds....YUM!  My only problem is a lack of funds....

I've never had turkey bacon, though I've been meaning to try it. I'm having second thoughts after the less than rousing or overwhelming endorsement from the gustatory afficianados here.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on February 5, 2015 at 8:07am

@ Randall - ugh! Turkey bacon is right up there with non-fat cream cheese or sour cream and non-alcoholic beer. Oxymorons each and every one!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 5, 2015 at 7:32am

I do, too, Felaine! I've been suffering through turkey bacon for several years. But I'm going back to the real stuff since I read that "Big Fat Surprise" book. Can't wait!

I didn't know where else to post this...I love bacon!
