Tis the season for craft Holiday street festivals in Bezerkely California. In the not so distant past Telegraph Avenue was a constant carnival of weirdness. Telegraph leads to the U.C. campus, the birthplace of the ‘Free Speech Movement’. Hippies & Yippies used to congregate and groove on this pathway to the campus. Today the street was lined with craftsmen and artisans selling their wares to Christmas shoppers. Gaze at the above image and you will see the sign that beckoned me to enlightenment. Bacon peanut brittle, how could I resist. I quickly left this enchanted land of kosmic, fabulous furry freaks brothers to sample my sweet treat.

‘Merrilyn’s Gourmet Fudge’ was the creator of this peanut brittle. This brittle was very thick. I used caution biting into this slab of buttery sugar so I would not crack a tooth. Bacon seemed a little scarce in this sugary treat. There was a slight bacon flavor that we had to search for.. We did notice a hit of salt most likely from the bacon. Bacon caught my attention but did not hold my interest. The sacrifices we make.

Sounds good but I am still dreaming of Bacon Salted Caramel. Nosh This is beyond great.

You could improve on their recipe in your own kitchen. Let me know when you are ready to sell some - I'd be your first customer.

Chilebrown said...

Kailyn, That sounds great. We will have to try some.

Zoomie, I am going to throw this back at you. I'd be your first customer.

On the bacon train!

Greg, Someday we are going to take the bacon train and transfer to the love boat and go on a cruise. After seeing what a great time you had, I am sold.

Those are not tears in my eyes. Ninjas are cutting onions.
Sigh, what a thing of beauty.

Hey Chris, You were right on the pork chops. We originally saw the method on their TV show. We have a subscription to the magazine but they still wanted more money to access their website. I did not name them because of their greed.
