Bacon, Crispy Bacon

I had you at bacon. This is a pretty simple idea that began with Thomas Keller. It's been lifted by the editors at Cooks Illustrated as well as a feature in the Huff Post. It's perfect for the Aga if crisp bacon is the goal.

Let's see how this goes down in the Agakitchen

  • Lay bacon out on cookie pan
  • Add 1/2 cup of water sprinkly evenly over the bacon
  • Bake on floor of Roasting Oven 8 minutes
  • Rotate pan and cook an addtional 4 to 8 minutes. Use good judgement

End result is a perfectly crisp, evenly cooked but not too brittle bacon

Check out my bacon dancing "on point".

Porky ballerinas!

I'd say right about Minute 11 would be a good time to sprinkle it all with some brown sugar and turn it into bacon candy.

Hey Gerry, at this very minute I've just cut up some pork shoulder that I'm taking to my Aga-job tomorrow to try making carnitas using the 100/0 rule. Just dawned on me yesterday that carnitas are the perfect Aga-food... but then I guess most any pork shoulder dish would be, huh?

First of the garden vegs are up so plenty of crunchy accompaniments for the carnitas, to help offset all that pork fat. Life is good.

I am jealous, the snow just left my yard last week! Do share your pork shoulder recipe.
