the bacon candle: pure genius

this was originally posted on the orkut "bacon community" boards, but since i no longer frequent orkut and have since started this blog, i'm re-posting it here (too bad i did this pre-camera phone, or else i'd have a picture of it, too):

Innovative Uses of Bacon By-Products 5/5/2004 9:50 AM

after making an entire package of bacon last week, i drained the fat into one of those little 7 oz. green chile salsa cans and put it into the freezer to solidify. then my friend jimmy came along with the brilliant idea of inserting a wick into the bacon fat can to make a bacon fat candle.

now, whenever we light it, people ask: is someone cooking bacon in here???

That is pure genius. Does it still exist today?

unfortunately, when chong moved to his new apt, i don't think he bothered to take the bacon candle with him.

but the beauty of the bacon candle is you can always make a new one. all you need is a pack of bacon, a small can, and a piece of string (or a tightly rolled up napkin or paper towel will also suffice).

when I was a kid back in the early fifties, a bacon fat candle was our main sorce of lighting for years, in our tiny house, we had no electricity.
