How To Make Bacon Salt


How To Make Bacon Salt
This homemade bacon salt is the perfect gift! It is so easy to make, all you need is salt and bacon and a few spice jars to store the salt in. And if you’re wondering what you use bacon salt on, the possibilities are only limited by your swine-lovin’ imagination. I’d use bacon salt to season perfect runny eggs with, or sprinkled on homemade popcorn, or rimmed on edge of a glass of a really good Bloody Mary.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces of bacon
  • 3/4 cup of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake the bacon until it is very very crisp and cooked. This is the one time you want to overcook bacon. You could also do this in a pan or even in the microwave. Bake for about 30 minutes in the oven or until the bacon is very dark and crisp.
  2. Drain on paper towels and pat as much oil off the bacon as possible.
  3. Allow bacon to cool completely.
  4. Process bacon in a food processor until they turn into grainy bits.
  5. Mix thoroughly with 3/4 cup of sea salt and add a teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Pack into small jars.
  7. Keep stored and air tight in a refrigerator.
