Is this really necessary?

If you are a survivalist and an Anabaptist, apparently so.
Note that you can buy pre-cooked bacon in flat plastic wrap which costs more but doesn't give you the tasty, useful bacon fat.

On Scalzi's blog someone describes it as a mortar round containing bacon flechettes.

There are Anabaptist survivalists?

I really need to keep up on this stuff more.

Anabaptist?


At first glance, I thought it was bacon beer.

The brand name on that stuff is "Yoder" and it has a picture of an Amish/Mennonite horse-and-buggy. The collective name for the Mennonites, Amish, Quakers, and other offshoots of that old crew, is "Anabaptists".

There is a snarky comment or two in the Scalzi blog about how they made the stuff to sell to the "English" - their equivalent of "Goyim".

Just unroll the bacon and reheat. Unroll. The. Bacon.

The most marvelous instructions I have ever read. Modern science is a wonderful thing.

NO! It looks NASTY... tasty is if it were fresh. Nasty is when it's soaked in preservatives and stuffed in a can.

It has a shelf-life of 30 years!!! GAH!

Well, I mean the pictures of it make it look like real bacon.. I can't imagine the smell though.. (I won't even buy the pre-cooked bacon. I want to cook it myself, thank you.)

Oh, well, yes, it IS real bacon, corrupted by the foul dark Napoleonic alchemies. The good people at Yoder should be ashamed.
