What is bacon?

What is bacon? has one of the better answers that I've seen with multiple links. In fact they have the only article that I have been able to find on the history of bacon... Then again I am a cheep graduate student, so I have not yet to buy any of the bacon cook books that might discuss the history of bacon.  Enjoy rummaging around these articles.

Who would have guessed that there are bacon toys. Okay so these aren't toys that look like bacon, but bacon is in the name. Here is the link to Blue Bacon Toys. I personally like the look of the balancing cactus.

How to make Bacon (not just bringing it home)

Ever wonder how bacon came to be? While this post won't answer how or when or where in history bacon came to be, I found this transcript from Alton Brown's show Good Eats on how to make your own bacon. Now It's not as funny as watching the show but he does give some great information, a bit of history, and his straight forward instructions for making bacon. Maybe some year I'll make my own bacon for bacon day.
