I was procrastinating this afternoon and came across this post on David Lebovitz’s blog describing his experiment with making candied bacon ice cream. After Ann’s post over the weekend on maple bacon lollipops, I couldn’t resist linking to this. Unlike Ann, I’m decidedly not a vegetarian and I love bacon, but I’m a bit skeptical about the bacon + ice cream combination. According to Lebovitz, he gave some to his butcher (Lebovitz lives in Paris; the references to his charcutier are to his butcher) without telling him what it was, and he loved it. For those inclined to give this a try, the post comes with photos and a recipe!
