A Fifth of Good Quality Vodka - Keep the Bottle!
5 – 8 Strips of Bacon, Cooked Crisp and Chopped Up
Coffee Filters, Large Strainer, Sterilized Mason Jars
Optional: Peppercorns, Garlic Cloves, Herbs
Optional: Decorative Bottle with Cap
- Fry your bacon crisp but don’t burn it. Chop it into pieces small enough to fit into your glass jar.
- Add your optional ingredients – making sure to trim, skin and clean where necessary.
- Shake gently, cap off the bottle and store in a cool, dark location. It's not necessary to refrigerate as the alcohol acts as an antibacterial pickling agent.
- Allow to sit for three weeks.
- When the “brewing” time is up place your jar in the refrigerator so the fat will float to the top and congeal.
- Remove the congealed fat with a fork or spoon it out.
- Place your funnel on the top of another mason jar, then place the coffee filters (2 or 3 together) into your large strainer and place this into your funnel.
- Pour the bacon infused vodka into the filter lined strainer/funnel set up right back into your original vodka bottle or a fun decorative bottle with a nice cap or cork.
Voila! Now you have Pig in a Bottle!
