Unfortunately you’ll need to part with your precious bacon fat (which is terrific drizzled over ice cream) to make bacon soap.
How to Prepare Bacon Soap:
This recipe is a basic soap recipe.
â€¢ 7.5 parts bacon fat
â€¢ 1 part lye
â€¢ 2 parts water
A). Melt the bacon fat on the stove. Do not get it too hot (not boiling/sizzling – very dangerous).
B). Skim off any particles or debris that float to the surface of the melted bacon fat.
C). Pour the melted bacon fat through cloth or paper towels into a large clean metal can (see photo), this will further filter the bacon fat.

This post is bittersweet. Sweet because it contains bacon but bitter because I’m openly being mocked by astrophysicists on their Discover magazine blog.
It’s actually more of a wiki than a church. But if I don’t post this now I’ll have this forwarded to me over and over again.
The Holy Church of Bacon [alternatively THCoB, CoB] aims to promote consumption of, and unfaltering love for, the holiest of holy foods: Bacon. We believe Bacon to be more worthy of nourishing the human body than any other food in existence. We abide by the Five Baconic Laws and live our lives in pursuit of the Bacony truth.
Candied bacon ice cream recipe:
I’m a big fan of both bacon and the beautiful, bright-orange yolked eggs we get in France, so why confine them to breakfast? I was pretty sure Candied Bacon Ice Cream would work. I mean, it’s got salt. It’s got smoke. So why not candy it? Inspired by Michael Ruhlman, l wanted to see what would happened when they all got together.
