This appeared in The Boston Blobe on Sunday. I haven't tried it yet, but it does sound good, so I thought I'd pass it along:
Since tomatoes are still showing up at the local farmers markets, I thought I'd try it when I know it will my last TBLT.
Are you kidding me? This is fantastic. Was quite the rage, this laquered bacon, with society ladies for hors d'oeuvres. By accident, I bought some maple glazed bacon and it was just delicious. I think I'll try it, too.
In the book THE WINDSOR STYLE by Suzy Menkes (1991), there's a recipe for sugared cocktail bacon served by the Duchess of Windsor. Same idea as the lacquered bacon, except cut into bite sized pieces.
Also known as "pig candy." Good stuff for breakfast or cocktail parties.
Probably really good, especially the spicy one. I've taken shrimp, deveined, added a sliver of jalapeno pepper, wrap w/ bacon, secure w/ toothpick, sprinkle w/ brown sugar and baked. It's so good--the salty, sweet, spicy.
