Cook Popcorn in Bacon Grease
Something primal has awakened in me, and my devotion to the bacon fat lifestyle has been renewed. I don’t know if it’s finally getting a fridge that’s big enough to accommodate my vintage grease crock, or the cold, rainy weather, but something has got me cooking everything in rendered animal fat. My current favorite snack is “meaty popcorn,” which is exactly what it sounds like.
Like all good popcorn, bacon fat popcorn is crispy and crunchy; unlike other popcorn, bacon fat popcorn is permeated with meaty, salty flavor.
